From "The History of Nodaway County, Missouri" published in 1882:

Peter Maurer, farmer and cattle feeder, section 10, is a native of Clarke County, Indiana, where he was born on the 25th day of December, 1852. When at the age of eleven years, in 1864, with his parents he moved to Holt County, Missouri, settling on a farm some five miles west of Graham. In 1865, he moved to Nodaway County, locating near Graham. In 1875 Peter went to Denver, Colorado, and followed the freighting business for some six months, when he returned to Graham and farmed and fed cattle for one year. In 1874, he did a livery and transfer business, carrying the mail from Graham to Bigelow, Missouri. He sold out, and farmed in 1875-6, and for the next three years was engaged in butchering and shipping live stock. In 1879, he became associated with J. Harlan Bohart, purchasing some 360 acres of improved land. They now devote their entire time to the live stock business, being one of the largest firms in this section of the county. Mr. Maurer was united in marriage on the 18th day of March, 1875 to Miss A. Milligan, a native of Perry County, Ohio, born in 1853. Both Mr. and Mrs. M. are members of the Presbyterian Church. Mr. M. is popular, cautions and firm in purpose. Though modest in appearance, he is nevertheless liberal, and stands high for his unswerving integrity and stability.
