I am also interested in learning more about the origin of the name "Moyle". Are "Moyle" and "Moyles" just variants of the same name? Is there a connection to the River Moy in Ireland? Is "Moyles" just a corruption of the English "Miles". Is "Moyle" derived from the Jewish Rite of Circumcision?
My great grandfather is Nere Vincent Rozier (1853 - 1896). He was born at Rozier Landing, Perry County, Missouri, USA. He died and is buried in Calvary Cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. He was married to Mary Lucy Moyles (1860 - 1909). I know very little about her. There were four children from this union: Abigail Catherine (1885 -1970), Jules Brady (1887 - 1964), Harriet Celeste (1890 - 1892) and Ralph Rice (1894 - 1971).
One family legend is that Mary Lucy Moyles was born aboard the ship her family took from Ireland to the US. I have searched many ship records with no result. She had a brother whose name may have been James who moved to Chicago. After his parents died, my grandfather, Ralph Rozier, stayed with this uncle in Chicago. When my mother was born, Ralph was in the army, so his wife went to Chicago to stay with this uncle. This is why my mother, Lucille Katherine Rozier Thompson (1917 - 1999), who lived in the St. Louis area most of her life, was born in Chicago.
The address on my mother's Illinois Birth Certificate which I believe to be the Chicago address of this uncle is 6641 Wentworth Ave.
Any information you might provide to shed some light on this branch of my tree would be quite appreciated.
