My name is Mary Annis
and I am the Site manager of this site.
This site was created using MyHeritage.com. If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me. This is an ongoing project, there are bound to be mistakes. The earliest event is the birth of Richard Newton, in 1542. This site was last updated on Apr 19 2018. You may also find me at ancestry.com.
The miscellaneous information is there in hopes to find a link. If no link is found, it is my hope someone can benefit by it. Also you will find several individuals not related. They have the surname of someone who is in my tree. Hopefully the connections can be made and if not, I hope they can benefit someone else.
So get a cup of tea, coffee (Hot or Iced) or hot chocolate and enjoy the site. Please come back often.
Russell Owen Annis passed away peacefully of Colon Cancer, March 6, 2012 at Kindred Hospital in Peabody, Mass. He resided in Groveton (Northumberland) N. H. He was born March 28, 1948 in East Concord Vt., the son of Josiah Charles Eugene Annis and Mildred Dorothy (Ackerman) Isham, and the spouse of Mary Ellen Bedell, daughter of Ralph Henry Bedell, Sr. and Daphne Isabell Newton.
Lets make this more than a site to explore our heritage. Please feel free to invite any family member to the site who is not already a member. There are many family members that I do not have e-mail addresses for that have yet to be invited.
Recently I have come into the possession of the articles featured in the Coos County Democrat on the 1951 fire. Because of its content and the feelings of those involved, I have chosen not to publish it. However if anyone is interesting in obtaining a copy of these articles I can send it to you if you e-mail me at my e-mail address or send a request through this web site.
The name Bedell means "Town Crier". The name Annis means "Big Nose". And not to insult the name of Annis, as I am one, the meaning is certainly true, as the Annis line still prevails with the "big nose".
For those of the other Bedell's who came from England. It was one of your ancesters who built this bridge. Our Bedell ancesters came from Ireland. It may be a long time ago one of our ancesters traveled to Ireland from England, we may never know.
