Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 22, 1861
Cedar County
Iowa, USA
Death: Nov. 1, 1937
Scott County
Iowa, USA

Note: Austin "A.J." Cantonwine was the son of David "Doc" Cantonwine and Cynthia Emily (Irish) 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.
