Miles Norton, b. ~1822 in VT

I am searching for the parents of my ancestor Miles Norton of Glover, Orleans, VT. Miles was born ~1822 in VT and died 4 May 1900 in Dane County, WI. He married a woman named Sarah, who was born April 1827 in VT and died 18 June 1901 in Dane County, WI. With her he had four children: Elmer (b. ~1852 in VT), George (b. 1854 in VT), Henry (b. 1859 in WI), and Sarah (b. ~1866 in WI).

I suspect that Miles' parents are Jeremiah & Amanda Norton. Jeremiah was born ~1797 and was the son of Nathan Norton, who I have read was one of the first settlers of the Glover area. I have a report that Amanda's maiden name was Seaver, but this is unconfirmed. The family appears on the census in Glover from 1830-1850, and the ages of the people in the household are consistent. However, in 1840 he is listed incorrectly as "Jesse," and this has thrown just enough doubt on my trail of proof that I cannot make the leap to say that Jeremiah is Miles' father.

Does anyone have any information on this family? I am very close to confirming this link and would like to solidify it as soon as possible. I did find a birth record on another site that stated that Miles was the son of Jeremiah & Amanda, but I have since been told by a reliable source that the site has many errors and that I should find hard proof. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
