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.
