Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 30, 1844
Coshocton County
Ohio, USA
Death: Oct. 22, 1929
Benton County
Iowa, USA

Eliza was the daughter of Archibald and Emily (Haines) Elson. In July of 1866 in Benton County, Iowa, Eliza married David Cantonwine, son of Michael and Catherine (Myers/Myres) Cantonwine and 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 Scholl, in Bedford county, Pennsylvania.

Eliza and David had five sons and two daughters: Harry Austin, Eva Lucina, Elery Budd "E. B.", Herbert U., Blanch Mabel, Clell Cecil, and Claude Clifford.
