    Appended is a cutting published in one of the Toowoomba papers in reference to her passing:

    'Another old identity of the district has just passed away, in the person of Mrs Mary Cossart, aged 80 years, who, with her husband, Mr Henry Cossart, arrived in Queensland by the ship "Flying Cloud" in Februray 1864. Mr and Mrs Cossart were pioneers of Perseverance, Mr Cossart being engaged in farming. After the death of her husband in 1878, Mrs Cossart removed to this town, where she had been a resident practically ever since - up to Saturday afternoon last when death, which was really due to the breaking up of the system, took place.
    The funeral, on Sunday last, was largely attended, her four sons - Messers John, James, Joseph and David, being present. The Rev J G Martin conducted the burial service in an impressive manner. Her sons are well known in this district, as well as in Ipswich and Brisbane, three of whom are engaged in the timber industry, two in Dugandan and one in Gatton. Mr John Cossart of Highfields being the eldest. Miss Cossart, the elder daughter, remained with her mother to the last. The youngest daughter is Mrs John Maddern, of Crow's Nest. Mrs Cossart also leaves a very large number of grandchildren to mourn her loss; and all her sorrowing relatives have in the bereavement the sympathy of a widespread acquaintance."1"
