Birth: Oct. 18, 1856
Decatur City

Death: May 2, 1926
Chaffee County

Alfred Dennis Cantonwine was the son of Jacob and Christena (Dilling) Cantonwine and the grandson of Charles and Mary Magdalena (Scholl) Cantonwine.

Charles, the patriarch of the Cantonwine family, immigrated to America from Prussia in 1806, arriving in Philadelphia, Penn., aboard the ship Orlando. The ship's passenger list shows "Chr. Kuntentwine, single man." The name Kuntentwine later evolved to Cantonwine, and Charles appears to be the only surnamed Kuntentwine/Cantonwine to immigrate to America. Eight or so years after his arrival in Philadelphia, in about 1814, Charles married Mary Magdalena Scholl, daughter of Charles Jacob & Margaret (Fuhr) Scholl, in Bedford county, Pennsylvania.

Charles and Mary's son Alfred married Hannah Etta/Etta Hannah Guire, daughter of Jacob and Lydia A. (Smith) Guire, in December of 1879. They had 5 children: Claude R. (m. Margaret Fehling), William O. (m. Ida Burleson), Frederick Earl "Cobb" (m. Essie Guire), Charles I.(single), and Mabel M. (m. Charles F. Matlock).
