Julius C. "J. C." Cantonwine
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1852
Black Hawk County
Iowa, USA
Death: Oct. 14, 1934
Douglas County
South Dakota, USA

J. C. (Julius) Cantonwine was the son of David "Doc" and his first wife, Huldah (White) Cantonwine, 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.

Julius married Lydia Shoemaker, daughter of James & Phebe (Cooper) Shoemaker, some time between 1880 and 1885. They later divorced.

Julius later married Maggie Schmalfeldt May 15, 1889, in Wyoming township, Jones county, Iowa. Julius and Maggie had three children, two sons (Georgia and Russel) and one daughter Hattie. Georgia and Hattie died in infancy.

Returned Body of Former Resident For Interment

The body of Julius Cantonwine, a resident here many years ago, was returned for burial Wednesday, following the death from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Mr. Cantonwine and his son Russell, were driving through the country with a horse and wagon, living, it would seem, in tourist camps as they were crossing the country to get to Kansas City. The rig became involved with a fast-moving auto, killing Mr. Cantonwine immediately. The son was not injured.

Some thirty-five years ago the family lived in Oxford Junction where Julius operated a general store. As a side issue he was active in the sale of sewing machines, touring large sections of this part of the state. After leaving here the family moved to Dakota, and it is presumed that location still would be called the home. The deceased was born in Waterloo, Iowa, in 1852, and died Oct. 14, 1934, at St. Joseph, Mo. Besides the son Russell, he is survived by a half-brother, Austin Cantonwine, of Davenport, his wife having preceded him in death on February 4, 1924. One daughter born to the couple, died in infancy. Funeral services were held at Hayden's' parlors at one o''clock Wednesday afternoon, with Rev. Wolgemuth of the Lutheran church officiating, and burial was made in the family lot at the Mayflower cemetery. Mrs. Austin Cantonwine and daughter, Mrs. Glenn Arthur of Davenport, were the out-of-town attendants. The son, Russell, arrived too late to be present at the service.
