Pearl May (Cantonwine) Arthur was the daughter of Austin J. "A.J." and Louise (Schindhelm) Cantonwine. She was the granddaughter of David "Doc" and Cynthia Emily (Irish) Cantonwine and great-granddaughter 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.

Pearl married Glen Arthur in 1917 in Davenport, IA. They had one son, Wayne.

Pearl died at the age of 98.
