Hi Rob. I recheck all my sources, but I did not find a John Cunningham with a Middle inital "S". When I was growing up in Lee Co., VA in the 1830-40s our RFD mail carrier was Bob Cunningham, b. 1892, Claiborne, Co., TN. According to his 1916 marriage record to Cora Gregory he is listed as Robert Sylvin Cunningham. He was the grandson of John S Cunningham and according to an LDS FAmily Search online (Morman Archives) He was listed as Robert Sylvan Cunningham. Seems likely he was nameded after his grandfather, who's middle name may have been Sylvan/Sylvin. I do not hve any information on the military record in the Civil War of John S. Cunningham, nor where you might go to find a source: (CSA or Union Army?). Ed
