John A. Cozart - Private   
'Cousin' John enlisted at age 26 from Carmi, White Co., Ill and served throughout the war. He was born in Hardin Co., KY in about 1836 and was married in 1857 in Illinois, prior to the outbreak. The 87th spent much time in Louisiana, where forage and supplies were often scarce. It is said of the 87th what while there, they 'rode everything but steers.' Interestingly, one source says that during that time, they were the 'best mounted' of all Yankee troops in the region. Several other Cozarts/Cozads/Cozards (and other variants) enlisted from White Co., Ill.
