On her maternal side, Pauline Hunt Hirshfield was the daughter of Paul Vane Hunt & Hattie May (Baldwin) Hunt, the granddaughter of Delbert D. "D. D." & Minerva Viola "Minnie" (Brooks) Baldwin, the great-granddaughter of Ira & Susannah V. (Cantonwine) Baldwin, the great-great-granddaughter of Michael & Catherine (Myers/Myres), and the g.g.g. granddaughter of Charles & 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.
