Best Answer

Andrew George Scott (Captain Moonlite, the Australian bushranger), son of an Anglican minister, had a gang that operated in southern New South Wales. On 15 November 1879, tired and hungry, Scott's gang bailed up the Wantabadgery Station near Wagga Wagga and rounded up the staff and the family of Claude McDonald, the station owner. Scott also robbed the Australian Arms Hotel of a large quantity of alcohol and food. In a fight with troopers several people died including one policeman. James Nesbitt, Scott's second-in-command, was also killed. Scott was captured and hanged in Darlinghurst Gaol in January 1880. He was buried in Rookwood Cemetery, despite his last wishes to be buried with his "beloved James Nesbitt".

In January 1995 his body was exhumed and he was buried next to James, his partner, in Gundagai Cemetery.

The crimes he was convicted of were:

  • 1870: Sydney: False Pretences,
  • 1872: Ballarat: Bank Robbery under Arms,
  • 1879: Sydney: Murder.
