The son of Montgomery Cunningham and Louisa Rodgers Meigs. June 5, 1845-September 3, 1853. He is buried among other family members in Section 1 of Arlington National Cemetery. Presumably he was buried elsewhere following his death inasmuch as Arlington was not a cemetery until 1864.
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
