Treasure Chest Thursday

Bible  Ira Daniel Ames (1842-1895) Cornelia Palon (1847-1893)

This family Bible belonged to grandmother Nancy Theo AMES.   I presume it originally belonged to her mother, Cornelia Palon. It is an American Bible Society Bible dated 1875 with the information below written in it. It is hard to read in some parts because the handwriting is faded. Any information on these AMES or PALON families of Albion, Dane County, Wisconsin would be appreciated.
