Peter Smith Anderson was the son of Abraham and Lucy (Smith) Anderson. He is named after his grandfather, Rev. Peter Smith. In 1810 he married Susanna, daughter of Maj. Benjamin and Elizabeth (Gammon) Bodge.
He was a farmer and owned and occupied a fertile farm in the south part of Windliam, near the old Congregational Church meeting house. Peter died there in 1867. His son Edward F. later owned the property.
It is documented that Peter is buried in the Smith family tomb, as are his wife and daughters Elizabeth & Olive Ann, but it is clear from these pictures that there is at least seperate markers for them.
(At this time, it is unknown if this is part of the Smith family tomb.)
