Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 20, 1884
Colorado, USA
Death: Oct. 18, 1970
Boulder County
Colorado, USA

Milton was the son of Robert Martin and Melissa A. (Sharp) Cantonwine, the grandson of Abraham and Elizabeth (White) Cantonwine, and the 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 Scholl, in Bedford county, Pennsylvania.

Milton married Melba Azula Neer on January 1, 1920 in Colorado Springs, El Paso county, CO. There are discrepancies regarding where Milton was born. One of his obituaries says Colorado Springs but a funeral memory card says he was born in Longmont.
