Moses [Adsett] took an active part in the small community, and there are numerous mentions of him in the Moreton Bay Courier and Brisbane Courier in the 1860s. One entry reports: 'A man, woman, and a bullock team in attempting to cross Enoggera Creek had been swept away by flood. Another entry: 'Fatal Accident at Enoggera Creek' tells the story of Joseph Gridley and Moses Adsett searching for and finding the bodies of John Dunford and his wife. Autopsy records for the couple concluded: 'accidental death by drowning whilst the deceased were in a state ofintoxication'. Perhaps the first case of drink driving in Brisbane?
