Captain Peter Anderson, one of the oldest and best known residents of Bolinas, where he has lived for more than half a century, died last Saturday at his home there. Funeral services were held yesterday in San Francisco, interment being in Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
Captain Anderson, who was in his 85th year, was well known as a master mariner. He had followed the sea from early manhood and came to this country 55 years ago when he located at Bolinas Bay and founded the Flagstaff Inn. Later he established water communication between San Francisco and Bolinas, and was a master at various times of the steamer Ida A., the Jennie Griffin and in later years, the Owl.
He is survived by 2 children, Alfred Anderson, who is connected with the Pacific Gas & Electric Co., and Mrs. H.F. Suhr, wife of Fred Suhr, former supervisor of San Francisco.
