Anton Reindl (father of Anton Joseph Reindl of Greenwood, Wis.)


In Anina township the Congregational Church was dedicated May 7th. During the summer the telephone line was extended west from the Kellogg farm in Anina to the Vessey farm in Crow Lake township. In the summer of 1905 a meeting was held at the residence of Andrew Pflamn in Logan township, by a few members of the Catholic Church at which it was decided to build a church edifice on section 20 in Crow Lake township, to cost about $1,500. At the meeting mentioned $600 was subscribed. Work on the church commenced at once and mainly through the efforts of Anton Reindl the money was raised and the building completed. The church was ready for dedication in the late autumn of that year. It was named "St. Marys." It stands near the south line of section 20 and is surrounded by a cleanly kept, beautiful church yard. In the cemetery are two graves, (1908), one that of an infant child of Mr. and Mrs. Petroski, but has no inscription on the head board. On the other grave stands a pretty monument. In German text, on a white plate, is this inscription. "Heir richt Anton Reindl, geb zu Reitz in Osteweich den 10 Juni, 1848, gest in Crow Lake, So. Dak. den 7 Juli, 1905." On a lower plate are the words, also in German text, "Nur in der Kirche ist Mein Heil."


The last work of Anton Reindl was building the foundation of this church. While engaged in that work he contracted the sickness from which he died before the edifice was completed. The church society was organized by Father O'Flaherty, of the Kimball parish.

The house once occupied by Jack Vessey, the resident partner of the firm of Vessey & Albert, has been moved to the Anton Reindl farm on section 20. The old store is now a sheep barn ; the building that was once the office of the Crow Lake "Homesteader" and the residence of its editor, Mr. Pooley, is now some where in Buffalo county; the school house that stood on the west side of the street has been moved to the northeast corner of the township; the frame building with its sod addition, at one time the village restaurant, is now a stable, but minus the sod addition. I spent the night with Mr. Barnum, the mail carrier, in the house built by A. M. Allyn, the first settler in the town, and where Mrs. W. R. Annis, now of Viola township, taught the first school in the old village. The old blacksmith shop of Fred Wood was moved to Wessington Springs. The old store building and residence of J. T. McGlashan is still where he built it, has just received a new coat of paint and contains a stock of goods that proves a great convenience to the people who go there for their mail and groceries.
