Birth: Dec. 16, 1926
Boulder County
Colorado, USA
Death: May 3, 2003
Deschutes County
Oregon, USA

John Robert "Jack" Cantonwine was the son of Milton and Melba (Neer) Cantonwine, the grandson of Robert Martin and Melissa A. "Lizzie" (Sharp/Sharpe) Cantonwine, the great-grandson of Abraham and Elizabeth (White) 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.
