Looking for information re: Peter T. Anderson, b. 03 Sept 1847. He was from Wiota, WI and married to Ella Kerns. Ella died in 1869 and Peter is not listed in the subsequent census records in WI any longer. He is also not buried in the cemetery where his wife is buried. I have info that he died in Storm Lake, IA on 26 July 1907, but no verification and no idea what happened to him after Ella died. They had one child together, Martha A. Anderson, b. 09 Dec 1868. Martha was my gg grandmother. I have info re: Peter prior to his wife's death, but nothing later. I believe Martha may have gone to live with her maternal grandmother in WI and suspect Peter remarried. Thank you!
