Birth: Oct., 1869

Death: Feb., 1911
Boulder County
Colorado, USA

Lena Lang was the daughter of Fred and Soneia Lang of Mecklenburg, Germany. She married Alden Cantonwine, son of Abraham and Elizabeth (White) Cantonwine and 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 Scholl, in Bedford county, Pennsylvania.

In Longmont, Colo., Monday, Feb. 27, 1911, of internal hemorrhage, Mrs. Lina [Lena] Cantonwine, wife of Alden Cantonwine, aged 41 years. Mrs. Cantonwine was taken ill last Friday, but was not considered in a serious condition. On Monday, she got up and mixed her bread, but was taken worse in the afternoon and passed away about 6:30. She was the wife of Alden Cantonwine, for years in the police service of Longmont. Besides her husband, she leaves one son [Clarence], almost 12 years of age. Mrs. Cantonwine was an active member of the Rebekah degree of the Odd Fellows. Funeral services were held in the I.O.O.F. hall Thursday afternoon.
