Beadle County

Death: Jan. 31, 1956

Paul was the youngest son of Harry Austin and Emma (Danburg) Cantonwine. He was the grandson of David and Eliza (Elson) Cantonwine, the great-grandson of Michael and Catherine (Myers/Myres) Cantonwine, and the great-great-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.

Paul married Elma E. Eggleston, daughter of Myron C. and Coresta A. (Curtis) Eggleston, on June 13, 1934, in Wessington, Beadle Co., South Dakota. He died at age 47. Elma died 77 years later, on Dec. 12, 2011 at age 100. She married three times after Paul's death -
