Reardan Cemetery is located at the Southeast edge of Reardan in the NW1/4 of SE1/4 of Sec. 15 Twp 25N Range 39EWM. Also known as the Reardan IOOF Cemetery, it was dedicated in September of 1894 though the oldest marker is dated 1885 . In the 1911 Atlas it is on page 121 and the 1960 Atlas it is listed on page 69. I grew up in Reardan & my dad had the cemetery records. I have added names, obits, and other information of the people buried there. I included all the burials, and then included the obits that I have. There are 3 burials which were not in the cemetery records (Byrd, Dittmar, and Brandenberg) but according to death records, etc, they are buried at the Reardan Cemetery. All 3 died before the big Reardan fire, so I was thinking maybe some of the cemetery records were lost in the fire.

   Leading Citizen of Reardan Dies. Although of more than ordinary physical structure and possessed of vigorous mental power, the life of M. Moriarity, one of the great men of Lincoln County, failed to withstand an attack of acute rheumatism lasting several weeks and made its exit from this earth Tuesday night, leaving hundreds of afflicted and mourning friends. Having come to Reardan 22 years ago, Mr. Moriarity was one of the builders of this section and never failed to exercise his powers for the advancement of the county. In this he was aided by a strong executive ability and a commanding influence that placed him at the head of the many great enterprises at which he directed his attention. His death is not only an irreparable loss to his family but to his city, county and state. In and around his hometown he was a main stay and without his forethought many of its lasting benefits would have never been realized. Mr. Moriarity came to this state from MN. At one time he acted as postmaster of Reardan and has held many positions of public trust, including a service of several years as mayor of his town. In business affairs he rose to the top and financially he met with success. He was president of the Reardan Exchange Bank, pres. of the Washington Grain & Milling Co, and vice-pres. of the Chamokane Lumber Co. In the first named institution, he held 155 out of 500 shares of stock issued, besides owning a great deal of farm land and city property. He was 52 years of age and leaves a wife, Frances, and daughter, Ella. The funeral will be held at Reardan Friday morning under the direction of the Odd Fellows of which order he was a faithful and active member. [Davenport Tribune; 6/29/1911]

   While at work Thursday afternoon last week at the farm of Otis Hanes, James Nugent, well known in this vicinity for fifteen years, dropped dead of heart failure. The body was brought to the Hard undertaking parlor the same evening. Burial took place Sunday afternoon at the Reardan Cemetery, after a short service at the grave conducted by Rev. John M. Thompson, Presbyterian minister. Though Mr. Nugent numbered among his acquaintances almost everybody in the Reardan country, so little was known of his history that the services were necessarily brief, as no one could inform the minister of the particulars of his life. Mr. Nugent was born at Dearborn, Michigan, about 73 years ago. It is believed that shortly after his wife's death he was moved to leave Michigan, whence he wandered over a great part of the western country. He was in the cattle business before leaving Michigan.

H. Podmore, who spent the summer visiting his family, which, since reaching their majority, have scattered over a very wide area of the United States , arrived Saturday morning from Murray , Utah , where his son Orville resides. When at Harrington Mr. Podmore makes his home with his daughter, Mrs. George G Doggett. It happened that his son-in-law did not motor to town last Saturday morning, so Mr. Podmore, who is a true pioneer and still quite vigorous, although 79 years of age, walked the whole distance of eight miles out to the ranch. Many a young man of the epoch of radio, phonograph and flying machines would have spent the day waiting for a ride. But Grandpa Podmore knows the value of walking for the preservation of the health and the proper functioning of the human system, and does lots of it. It is the most inexpensive exercise known and in Mr. Podmore’s case may be a major factor in his good health and longevity.” (Citizen: 9-09-1927) Grandpa Podmore Lives Four Score Eleven Years.

Richard H. Podmore was born Aug 4, 1849, at St. Louis, MO, of English ancestry, both his parents having been born in England. His mother died when he was a child of five. Mr. Podmore was married in the East to Alice Beeman, and the family of children were born there. In 1902, the Podmores came west to Washington where they purchased land south of Reardan. Mr. Podmore's wife died in 1906 and the past 25 years he has visited among his children much of the time. Mr. Podmore was a member of the Central Baptist church in Spokane.

   (Age 91) Surrounded by his family, our beloved husband, father and granddad passed away peacefully on February 12, 2007 in Spokane, Washington. He is survived by his beloved wife of 43 years, Edna; his son and wife, Jerry and Aileen Warner of Spokane; his son and wife, Denny and Lynn Warner of Simi Valley, CA; and his daughter Kathy Dame of Fresno, CA. He has 11 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren who will also miss him dearly. Born April 8, 1915 in Glencoe, Oklahoma, he graduated from Oklahoma A&M with a degree in Engineering. He spent his career working at Rocketdyne in California during the era of the Apollo space program. After 29 years, he retired in 1968 to pursue his passion for the great outdoors; a love he and Edna shared together. They moved to Marvel, Colorado and spent 31 years camping, hunting, hiking, backpacking, and teaching others about the wonders of nature. In addition to being an avid outdoor adventurer, Roy was also a servant leader. He was active in many organizations including: lifelong membership in the Methodist Church; Masons since in 1957; Marvel Grange for 27 years; Marvel Volunteer Fire Department for eight years; Red Cross; Farmington Rock Club; Durango Rock Club; Jeep Club. He also volunteered for both 4-H and the Boy Scouts. He led many youth on camping expeditions, serving as both mentor and friend. Known as a "rock hound", one of his favorite activities was for himself, Edna and friends to go adventuring in their Jeep throughout the canyon lands of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah and collect rocks. He was an exceptional craftsman who turned nature into art in the form of jewelry, bookends and through his talent as a silversmith and engraver. Roy holds a special place in the hearts of all who knew him. We cherish our memories of him and with earnest pass onto future generations the many things he taught us.
