    Notes 
    • Anthony was a leading citizen of Templeton Township in the mid 1800s and was the entrepreneur and business success of the Cullen family. He was a mini-barron in the squared timber business, operating shanties in the winter and timber marketing of white and red pine from the plentiful forests of Templeton and surrounding townships. He became a significant investor in land for his timber business, owning some 1,400 acres between 1847 and 1864. He operated the business from the 1830s to his death in 1870. He also had a sizeable farming operation in East Templeton.
      Anthony was a pillar of the Catholic Church and was instrumental in creating St. Anthony of Padua parish in Perkins. And he donated the bell for St. Francois de Sales church in Pointe-Gatineau.
      He was a captain in the Templeton militia, a justice of the peace and an investor in infrastructure, toll bridges and the planned Montreal and Bytown Railway. He was involved in local and provincial politics, culminating in a run for office in 1857.
