Celebrating Colonel Robert Nichol
by Cheryl MacDonald
A historical plaque will be unveiled in September 2009, dedicated to Robert Nichol. This article originally promoted a fundraiser to that end. Click on illustration at right for fundraiser information.
Robert Nichol was an extremely important individual in early Ontario history -- a merchant, miller and businessman.
He was probably the wealthiest man in Norfolk County in 1812. He commanded the 2nd regiment of the Norfolk Militia at a time when men from Haldimand County served with the Norfolks.
