John Rowe Moyle 1808 – 1889

John Rowe Moyle was born in Wedron, Cornwall, England on 22 Feb 1808 and died in Alpine, Utah on 15 Jan 1889.

Well known as a stalwart in the Mormon faith, he exhibited fearless tenacity in managing pain as he walked the 30+ miles between Alpine and Salt Lake City each week to work on the Salt Lake Temple on a self-carved artificial leg.

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
