Early residents of Shefford County, Quebec, the Cutler family came from the United States and was related to the descendents of Captain John Savage, who was the first settler of Shefford County in 1790s. Roswell Culter, son of Anthony Culter Sr. and Jemima McCorkey (or McConkey), probably owned a general store in Shefford, selling items such as books, fabrics, and feed.
