The anchor pin above the wheel cylinder is NOT removable on most applications. There is really no need to remove it unless it is worn out, if that is the case you'll need to replace the whole backing plate..

There should be a nut on the back of the pin.

Just did brakes two days ago, bashby is correct with the 7/16" socket. I also needed a set of vise grips to hold the stud from spinning.

If it or the backing plate is rotted bad enough, you'll have to replace the whole backing plate. I could grab a set of rust-free ones off a CA truck next time I'm at the junkyard if you need them.
