Rhoda Ellen (Royal) Felton was the daughter of John William and Catherine (Cantonwine) Royal and the granddaughter 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.
Rhoda Ellen married Willard B. Felton, Sr. on September 1, 1869 in Lake county, Colorado. They had three children: Mary, Harry, and Myrtle. Willard had two other wives: his first was Frances Ann Burbank, whom he divorced, and Tillie A. Hemmerle, whom he married abt 1885 after Rhoda's death.
