Wondering if this Benjamin B. Annis is the same one that is listed in the 1850 census in Brandon, Rutland VT? In that same census, same town, was Henry Annis b. 1831. Seeking Henry's parents. I'm thinking there's a possibility that Henry and Benjamin were brothers. Henry's middle initial was B., also.
