Howard Conger Cantonwine was the son of Walter Charles and Elizabeth "Tressie" (Kries) Cantonwine, the grandson of David "Doc" and Cynthia Emily (Irish) Cantonwine, and the 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.

Howard was married to Gertrude Meek, the daughter of Stephen A. D. and Gertie A. (Pasley) Meek and granddaughter of the famous Joe Meek, Northwest pioneer, peace officer, and frontier politician. Howard and Gertrude had three daughters.

Howard was a well-known wrestler, going by the name of "Hangman."
