I was flipping through the recent Deseret Book catalog, that arrived yesterday..

and the name, John Rowe Moyle caught my attention.

My Great Grandmother’s sister, Berniece was married to a Moyle. I used to sit and visit with Berniece and Lyman, when they were in California, to visit my Grandma.

I’ve been to Alpine to see the Moyle Fort.

I had only read about it, before this visit, in my book Alpine Yesterdays. I had listened to my great grandmother tell stories about the Moyle family.

Curious to the family pedigree connection, I popped onto Family Search.

Now, I’m confused, enough, that I’m here to map out what I’ve found.. *smile*

Lyman Moyle’s Father is Joseph Edward Moyle

Joseph’s father is John Rowe Moyle

But, this is interesting..
Joseph’s brother was also married to a Carlisle:
(My great great grandmother is a Carlisle.. that would make Lyman’s mother-in-law a Carlisle..)

Fanny Elizabeth Carlisle is daughter of Thomas Fields and Fanny Sophia Hocquard

Thomas Fields Carlisle is Berniece’s great grandfather!

So, on paper, I have Fanny Elizabeth Carlisle is Berniece’s Great Aunt (sister of her maternal grandfather) and John Rowe Moyle (Jr, son to the John Rowe Moyle in the DVD) is Lyman’s Uncle (brother of his father.)

and that makes Berniece and Lyman cousins? How many times removed? I have no idea.

You may know John Rowe Moyle, more, from this:


Arriving in Alpine, Utah in 1852, Thomas Fields Carlisle, born 10 April 1823, is my great great great great maternal grandfather. (my great grandmother’s (born 10 April 1912, on his birthday, ironically) maternal great grandfather)

Arriving in Alpine, Utah in 1855, Richard Carlisle, born 16 April 1798, is Thomas Carlisle’s father.
