immigrated in 1911
sister- Clara Houde, b- Sept 1888 in USA
nephew- Leo Houde- b- Apr 1907 in USA
nephew- Chester Houde, b- Jan 1909 in USA
brother-in-law, Hubert Turgeon, b- Dec 1873 in Quebec

all in 1911 census Tsp 5, Rge 8, W2

Gustav "Gus" Walgram
He took out western land grant on SW Section 20, tsp 5, rge 7, W2


Origin of the Name Cullen

Named after a Quaker Poet, Journalist, and Editor,

 William Cullen Bryant
b- Nov 3, 1794 in a log cabin near Cummington Mass. USA
 d- June 12, 1878 in New York City
Buried in Roslyn Cemetery, Roslyn, Nassau Co, NY, USA
He was an American Romantic Poet, Journalist,
and a long-time Editor of the New York Evening Post.
Bryant Park in New York City was named after him.

His Last Name Bryant was used for another SK Hamlet
just west of Cullen.

As far as I know, it is still a mystery who named these towns.
Most in this area, if not all, were named after poets,
and or, writers, but who named them is unknown.

I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
