Birth: Aug. 29, 1909
Lane County
Oregon, USA
Death: Apr. 24, 1980
Kern County
California, USA

Gale Morrell "Bud" Cantonwine was the son of Albert Francis "Bert" & Mabel L. (Prosser) Cantonwine, the grandson of Wesley J. & Clara E. (Cram) Cantonwine, the great-grandson of George C. & Mary Malinda (Lewis) Cantonwine, and the great-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.
