2010 John Jenkins Designs Collector's Club Membership Figure - Capt. John Jenkins of the Glengarry Light Infantry, “The Hero Of Ogdensburg” 

John Jenkins joined the 104th Regiment on 9th September 1804 as an ensign. In 1812 he was offered a captaincy in the Glengarry Light Infantry. It was recorded that he was a man of “striking appearance”, and a member of a New Brunswick Loyalist family. General Orders on 25th February praised Captain Jenkins, as “the hero of Ogdensburg”. During this engagement he was to suffer severe wounds to both arms, which saw his left arm later amputated at the shoulder. After spending the summer in hospital, he was appointed town mayor of Fredericton, in New Brunswick. He was to die in New Brunswick on 9th February, 1819.
