article from the Confederate Veteran mag., dated January, 1919, page 28.
HENRY MOYLE died at his home in Butler County, Kans., on Nov. 20, 1918, and his body was consigned to mother earth by his brother Masons after the Episcopal Church services.
Comrade MOYLE was born in Cornwall, England, Jan. 23, 1845 and brought to the Unites States by his parents when a child. He lived with them in North Carolina until the opening of the war, when he joined Company C, 1st N.C. Infantry, in April, 1861. He was in the battles before Richmond, being wounded at Big Bethel and also on Sullivan Island, near Charleston. He was mustered out of service in April, 1865.
HENRY MOYLE came to Kansas and settled in Butler County in 1869 and accumulating a large body of land proved to be underlaid with oil and gas, thus making him one of the oil kings of Kansas.
His wealth but served him to better the man and give him the means to many deeds of charity that suffering and sorrows might be alleviated.
A true friend, a splendid neighbor , a loyal citizen and a Christian gentleman. Peace be to his ashes !
[ R.T. BEAN, Wichita, Kans.]
