“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 irrepairable loss to his family but to his city, county and state. In and around his home town 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.” (Dav. Tribune: 6-29-1911)
