I found a James J. Lister, Sgt, Co D, 35th Ill US Infantry. His records lists the following characteristics:

Can this man be the one you are looking for? I have not found his name in the VA National Grave Locator, but I am still looking.

The John Lister of the 96th Ill, Co F, was mustered out in 1865.
