The genealogy index at the Wisc. State Historical Society does not seem to have them listed.

They don't have every listing, so I wouldn't discount it. According to a tree I found onilne (unsourced), it says Ben Abson (d. abt 1870) married Charlotte Francess Hall (b. 1846 Englnad; d. 1911 Kansas) married in Illinois (no date given).

Is this the same family? Again, that tree is un-sourced and has over 38,000 names, so who knows how accurate it is.

Wisconsin in the mid 1800's was widely written about as being a great new land of opportunity. I have family that moved to Walworth in 1840 from New York, others who moved in 1865 from Massachusetts, and two families from England who moved to western Wisconsin in the 1860's and 1880s.

There are two Books about Walworth county you may try checking:
