John Rodgers Meigs Taylor
Colonel, United States Army
District of Columbia (Washington, DC) Flag
Born in 1865 he was the son of Joseph Hancock and Mary Meigs Taylor. His middle names may are "John Rodgers" and he may be named after his mother's brother, John Rodgers Meigs, who was killed in action in the Civil War.

These would then be connections between some of the most famous names in American military history (Taylors, Meigs and Rodgers').

His brother, Montgomery Meigs Taylor, Rear Admiral, United States Navy, is also buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

He died in 1949 and was buried among other family members in Section 1 of Arlington National Cemetery.
