Spelling of his first name.
While the gravesite shows Annias, you'll frequently find the name spelled Ananias in documents. You'll also find documents with Anias. If you look up the spelling, Ananias is a biblical name and the name I think they were perhaps going for. In any case, if you're researching this family, look for these spellings as well as a few others! Since I have no way to know how a researcher will spell the name, I've used the biblical spelling, which is the one that most consistently appears in documents.
