The Cossel Cousins’ reunion was held July 29, 2017 at the home of Jim and Janet Fishback of Downing, Mo.

Fried chicken and brown sugar ham was served with all cousins providing a carry-in meal. We were amazed we had no duplicate dishes or desserts.

The afternoon was spent visiting, copying pictures and researching family history.

We were pleased to meet a cousin, Judy Cossel Rice and her husband, Roland, from Provo, Utah. Judy was raised on the west coast and this was our first acquaintance.
