Find A Grave: Altheah French Scoville and George Scoville: Green County Wisconsin

Today I was lurking around the net and found two graves on

 I am still trying to prove that Altheah French Scoville is my GG Grandmother.  I match with her in my Ancestry DNA. I found my Great Grandmother (Orthera C Palin aka Cornelia Palon)  living with her husband George Scoville in 1850.

I followed up with Find A Grave lead but the party who posted information on George Scoville did not know anything more about the following.

Maybe some of my readers can offer suggestions.

I am researching Altheah French Scoville.  See question 1 and 2 below. 

1.   Do you know if Althea was married to a Palen prior to marrying George Scoville.

Birth Year:abt 1813

See census below the graves

2.   Also do you know who Mary J Scoville is in 1850 census with George Scoville?  and the 3 year old child Orthera A Palon listed in the household. I found
a posting by Ruth Scoville Palmer who said Orthera A Palon (aka Cornelia Palon Ames) was her sister.
