Levi Speelman, Torrey NY 1809-1893

As a volunteer, I took photos in Hopeton Corners Cemetery, township of Torrey, Yates Co., NY...and I'm working on Levi Speelman. I came across this entry (see below), and was wondering if anyone has information on Levi? His is NOT listed on the military rosters for the county of Yates and does NOT have a marker...I think he ought to! please help

It is not often it falls to our lot to record such a pleasant episode as occurred at the residence of James Purdy in Benton, on Wednesday the 3rd inst. It was a reunion of some of the survivors of Co. A. 3rd Reg't and 4th Brigade of mounted volunteers which was disbanded about 1850. Co. A. was the Geneva Co., and at one time was commanded by Cap't Thos. W. Hall, who afterwards became Colonel of the Reg't. The guests were:
Col. Thos. W. Hall of Seneca, age 80, Jan 31st '92
Ord. Serg't Paul F. Bill of Seneca, age 76 June 29th '91
Musician E. N. Hall of Seneca, age 70 June 2nd '91
Corporal H. S. Barnes, Torrey, age 79 May 15th '91
Corporal Wm. T. Barnes, Geneva, age 74 Aug 15th '91
Private James H. Purdy, Benton, age 75 Apr. 13th '91
**Cap't of Penn Yan Co. Levi Speelman**, Torrey, age 82 Oct 13th, '91
