- A postcard with a picture of Robert Nelles' Manor that was built in 1798. On the front it says: "The Manor (over 100 years old) Grimsby, Ont." Nelles was a Lieutenant-colonel of the 4th Regiment of the Lincoln Militia by the end of the War. He was also known to have been a Justice of the Peace and performed many marriages during the war.
His home was also occupied by United States forces during the war. As a result, he made a war claim to the government for the many damages that occured during their encampment. His home was also the site of a celebratory ball that was held for the 4th Regiment of the Lincoln Militia as well as the residents of Grimsby following the war.
