Who is Cornelia Palon? ORTHERA? AMELIA? AEILIA? CORNELIA?




In 1850 NY census  Cornelia Palon (Ames) {my great grandmother}
 (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. 

Exhibit 1.


From the Janesville Gazette, Janesville, Wisconsin May 6, 1893.
Ruth Scoville Palmer.


In my research I found a James Palon written in the corner of the
 Bible page of my grandmother Nancy Theo Ames which said
 James Palon died on 24 August 1887. ***Entry did not say where James Palon died.


Also found a James Palon in the 1850 census for Oswego, NY
 Federal Census and the 1860,  and 1870 and 1880 Chicago Illinois 
census. In the 1850 and  1860 Chicago, Cook, IL Federal Census
 there is an Amelia Palon and Cornelia Palon. 


Am not sure if this is the James Palon in my grandmother’s Bible.
I also received a document )NN Palon)  in the mail which 
is not sourced so will 
have to review this. (Exhibit 4)

Sure looks like Altheah FRENCH Scoville may have been
 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.



This 1850  NY Oswego County US census was enumer ated on 
18 August 1850 in Osweo NY

 In my research I found a James Palon written in the corner of the Bible page of my grandmother Nancy Theo Ames which said James Palon died on 
24 August 1887. ***Entry did not say where James Palon died.

Also found a James Palon in the 1860 census for Chicago and 1870
 and 1880 Chicago Illinois census.




Exhibit 3


Am not sure if this is the James Palon in my grandmother’s Bible.
I also received a document in the mail which is not sourced so will
 have to review this. 





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

Cornelia Palon Ames Death certificate.

Sure looks like Altheah FRENCH Scoville may have been 
Cornelia Palon’s mother.Then who would Susan Palon be?
 Would Althea be divorced from James Palon? 
Would James Palon be the brother-in-law of
 NN Palon who Althea was married to?   
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.

******NEED SOME SUGGESTIONS AND ASSISTANCE WITH FUTURE RESEARCH ON CORNELIA.


FUTHER RESEARCH:
1. George Scoville marriages (Possibly married three times)
2. Birth or Church records for Althea FRENCH
3. Marriage records for Cornelia Palon Ames
4. More information on James Palon and his children and wife. 
Possibly may find on a query or in Newberry Library in Chicago.
5. Find out who Mary J Scoville is in 1850 census
 Green County Wisconsin US Federal Census.
