Both John and his son Michael were known to have used the post-nominal abbreviation, 'U.E.L.' after their names when they were older. That stands for "United Empire Loyalist", which was a fraternal group for Americans that had remained loyal to the King during the Revolution, and then migrated to Canada after the war was over.
