Surname Changed

Classification: Query
Surnames: Anderson, Smith
Hello. I have reason to believe that the surname was changed on my paternal side.

The story is told that the name was Anderson, but changed to Smith "because there were too many Andersons". Not sure of the spelling of Anderson.

I find a deadend at my great and great great grandfather's area. So it isn't as far back as I thought it would be.

How do I find such records? 1800's or late 1700's. Possibly St. Louis, MO.

Thank you.
