The son of Josiah and Clara Benjamin Meigs. December 1, 1788-July 20, 1818. Possibly the Uncle of Montgomery C. Meigs.
He is buried with other family members in Section 1 of Arlington National Cemtery. He was presumably interred elsewhere and then moved to Arlington at some later date inasmuch as Arlington was not a cemetery of any kind 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.
