Soon after the arrival of the Cossart family they went to the Toowoomba district, and were amongst the pioneer settlers upon the lands surrounding the Perseverance Creek. Mr Cossart was engaged nearly the whole of his 47 years' residence in Queensland in connection with, the timber industry. Mainly through his instrumentality some of the large milling concerns that have been operating for upwards of 40 years in the Perseverance district were established, as he directed the attention of interested parties to the vast timber resources there. About the year1890 he removed to the Dugandan district, where he remained for about 11 years. Subsequently, with his son Sidney, he took over the timber milling business at Gatton. About three years ago, on account of the progress of the business, his other three sons Leslie, Percy and Norman, were taken into it.

He was one of the prime movers and held the position of chairman in connection with the erection of the fine monument in Gatton to the memory of the soldiers who fell in the South African wars. It is interesting to note that two of the late gentleman's sons, Sidney and Percy, were actively engaged in the South fighting campaign, and saw some hard fighting Mr Sidney Cossart is now an active member of the Legion of Frontiersmen in Brisbane. The late Mr Cossart was a man who was highly respected by all who knew him. He was a man of strong personal conviction and led according thereto.
