a(14)=1354828 from http://www.prothsearch.net/cullen.html - Mohammed Bouayoun (mohammed.bouayoun(AT)sanef.com), Apr 20 2006

The term 1467763 was added in error and has now been deleted; Jens Kruse Andersen, Nov 28 2007, remarks that 1467763*2^1467763-1 is a Woodall prime, but 3 divides the Cullen number 1467763*2^1467763+1.

6328548 from John Blazek, May 14 2009. He later reports that the search of the range from 6300000 to 6328548 was completed on May 28 2009.
