Anthony and John Wallace look like brothers in the early Matilda settlers of Lunenberg. Families listed in "The Story of Dundas County":
Anthony Wallace's family: Peter, Nicholas, Mary, Hester, Amanda
John Wallace's family: Anthony, David, Daniel, John, Solomon, Catharine, Elizabeth

Anthony was baptised 14 July, 1793, son of John Wallace/Walliser and Christine Fell, who were married on 27 March 1792. Appears to have been of German descent.
His brother John was definitely born 1804 so probably not Susanna's brother.

Possible matching immigration record: John Wallace "settled in Toronto as carpenter from Ireland in 22 April 1819"
"Irish Immigrants in North America, 1775-1825"
