|Birth: ||Mar. 27, 1887|
|Death: ||May 29, 1952|
Frederick Earl "Cobb" Cantonwine was the son of Alfred Dennis and Etta Hannah (Guire) Cantonwine, the grandson of Jacob and Christena (Dillon/Dilling) Cantonwine, and the great-grandson of Charles and Mary 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 Kuntenwine/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.
Frederick married Essie M. Guire some time before 1925.
