You won't be able to find a birth certificate for 1830. Statewide registrations didn't begin until c. 1880 (the boroughs were different).
Information here from NY State Archives:
Did your ancestor apply for and/or receive a pension from the war? His wife or children may have applied for it as well.
Order a full copy of his pension file:
Civil War Military / Pension Records
They had to send in proof of who they were. Bible record copies, sworn statements, wedding record copies, etc. I sent away for one and was astonished it was 125 pages plus. He had to keep proving how sick he was as the gov't. wouldn't pay. (He was not an officer). If your 2x Great Grandfather was using another name, not sure how that would work out, unless they were aware of his alias later on and combined a file.
The state archives in both WI and NY may have something - even if he mentioned an Uncle or some relative on official papers, that could give you a lead.
Hope it works out!
