Charles R. Cantonwine was the son of Harvey Austin and Emma Matilda (Danburg) Cantonwine, 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.
Harvey and Emma Cantonwine had five children: Harold (1901-1972), Lula (Cantonwine) Carr(1902-1988), Guy (1904-1982), Charles R. (1906-1987), and Paul E. (1909-1956).
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.
