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. 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.

Son of John G. Wendlandt & Sophia D. Abitz
William's wife was a Tramm - maybe Bertha? - Bertha was married to William Schulz & is buried with him, but I think she married William Wendlandt after William Schulz died in 1907; she died in 1938
On 1930 census, William is 54 & Bertha is 56; William stated he was 54 y.o. at time of first marriage; Bertha stated she was 17 y.o. at time of first marriage
