Obituary: Daniel S. Onstott (newspaper unknown)

Daniel S. Onstott was born near Vinton, Iowa, November 30, 1849 and died in his home in Blackwell, Oklahoma December 12, 1926, at the age of 77 years and twelve days. He came to Kansas in 1865 where he was married July 28, 1876 to Mary Turner. Five children were born to this union. They are: Clara O. Wright, Harry O. Onstott, Albert R. Onstott, Wesley E. Onstott, all living, and Quincy D. Onstott, who died in infancy.

Mr. Onstott made the race at the opening of the "strip" and was successful in getting a claim eight miles northwest of Blackwell, Oklahoma. In 1908 the family moved to Braman, Oklahoma where they resided until about eighteen months ago when they moved to Blackwell on account of the failing health of Mr. Onstott. The deceased was converted when fourteen years old and united with the Methodist church in Braman, Oklahoma soon after it was organized. He leaves a widow, four children, ten grandchildren, two brothers and one sister. [end of obituary]

Daniel S. Onstott was the son of Isaac and Margaret Jane(Cantonwine) Onstott 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.
