(Daughter-in-law of Adolphus Ames,Wife of Ira Daniel Ames,
Mother of Nancy Theo Ames, my grandmother)
is enumerated in August 1850 Oswego, NY as
Cornelia or Amelia Palon and the
Green County Wisconsin census Orthera Palon is
enumerated in October 1850. I know that the Orthera Palon
in 1850 Wisconsin is my Cornelia Palon because of
a newspaper article by Ruth Scoville her sister.

James Palon died on 24 August 1887. ***Entry did not say where James Palon died.

have to review this. (Exhibit 4)
Cornelia Palon’s mother.
Then who would Susan Palon be? Would Althea be divorced
from James Palon?
Who was Mary Scoville in 1850 Wisconsin living with George Scoville?
Was Mary Scoville Althea’s sister? Don’t think so because the census
says Mary Scoville was born Kentucky. I have not found the marriage
records for George Scoville. This would be wonderful as It might clear
some of this up or only add confusion.

Aeilia Palon and the mother is Althea FINN/FLYNN married to a
NN(no name) PALON. On Cornelia's death certificate it faintly
says "Mother's maiden name FINN". I am in the process of
contacting the party who sent me the exhibit 4 above to
obtain his source.

Would James Palon be the brother-in-law of

I have not been able to find the John Ames who signed Adolphus' son into the Civil War and also why since Harvey Campbell was his guardian.
It seems that my Ames who tested with the Ames Society is minus 2 generations from the other Ames that tested. The other Ames is descended from a Samuel Ames and Louisa Ames who lived in New Lebanon, Columbia, New York in 1850. This family migrated to Lenawee, Michigan which was on the migration route of Adolphus on his way to Wisconsin. I have not found any of the Samuel Ames descendents in Dane, Jefferson, or Rock County Wisconsin yet.
Unfortunately, NY did not start keeping vital records until 1880.
I have to now look at newspapers, church records of the area. My hypothesis is that Samuel Ames is a brother to my Adolphus Ames since Samuel was born around 1800.
We did the 67 marker DNA test on the advice of the Ames Society. This result should be coming in any day.

When Adolphus Ames died in Wisconsin in 1854 his probate records said he was penniless.
The three boys were put under guardianship of Harvey Campbell. Sarah his daughter was married to Milo Campbell and living in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin at this time. [more on Sarah in a later blog]
Henry Ames was found in 1860 working for William Chambers.
Andrew Jackson Ames was found in 1860 working for Seymour Woolcott.
Ira Ames in 1860 was working for Wm Morrison.
Ira was 12 when he went under guardianship of Harvey Campbell. However in 1860
at age of 19 years and 9 months enlisted in the Civil War with John Ames as guardian.
Was John Ames the John Norton Ames grandson of Nathaniel Ames? Was this John Ames a relative?
Could not find any records showing that guardianship for Ira Daniel Ames changed from Harvey Campbell to a John Ames. Was he a young man anxious to sign into the Civil War and made up the name "John Ames" and signature on the enlistment papers? I doubt he made up signature as this document looks pretty official and was in his NARA records of enlistment.

Adolphus Ames Family
In 1840 Adolphus is living with wife and one child Sarah age 2 born in New York. Also living with Adolphus Ames household is a woman between ages of 60-70 who might be mother or mother in law. I looked at obituaries in Mc Kean County for any Ames or mention of any elderly woman living with the Adolphus Ames family in Norwich Township but did not find any thing. I visited the cemetaries in Norwich Township in 2008 but did not find any Ames tombstones.
