Peter  was born 24 February, 1748, New York, He died  20 August, 1809.He married  Jannetje Jacobus 1789. 

Peter served in Seeley's Regiment NJ Militia.  He served Capt Stephen Baldwin's Company at the alarm at Connecticut Farms from the 7 June 1780.  His pay for eight days was 16 shillings at 1 shilling 89 pence per day.  His certification date was 18 February 1783.  There are no personal papers in his file.  He lived on the west side of the "Bog and Fly" according to the account in American ancestry by Munsel, vol 8, page 138.  The Bog and Fly was a valley in Morris County not far from Pompton, which was noted for it's great fertility.  It was also noted for raising onions.

He was a farmer and lived in Parsippany, NJ in his later years.  According to tax records he was living next to Mourison family.  There are maps listing the Mourison family land near the Horseneck Bridge in Montville.  It is my assumption that this is where Peter Courter lived and where he died.

The following information is from NJ, Morris, Pequanock tax lists 1778-1822 listing either land, horses or cattle.
