1847: Convict Death Register - Died at Moreton Bay.
Moggy-Moggy an aboriginal native was indicted with wilful murder, by spearing William on the 21st and inflicting a mortal wound at Pine River. William languished until th 27th and then died of his injuries. William was working in a saw pit with William Waller, who was also killed.
Moggy-Moggy was later freed as he said it wasn’t him and the interpreter said that the natives all looked alike and it was hard to tell them apart, so he was freed for lack of evidence.
