Erik P. Conard shares the following Cossel Cemetery History:

Located in Charleston twp, but lies near Seven Hickory township, northwest of the old Michael Cossel homestead. 33 marked burials took place from 1845 to 1871, after which it was abandoned in favor of the new Mound Cemetery. Several of the bodies were then moved to Mound. Michael Cossel (d. 9 Aug. 1847) is the only marked Cossel grave in the cemetery. The cemetery has been catalogued by Earl Anderson and Erik Conard, with copies in the possession of the Coles County Genealogical Society. William Leitch cleaned up the cemetery in the 1960's, but Erik says the cemetery has again become overgrown.......
