James Ball/Abby Ann Cook, Yorkville, WI

Looking for information about James Cook, born England 1819, died Yorkville 1899, buried in Yorkville Cemetery with his wife Abby Ann (Cook) Ball.

I have found them in the 1860 census of Richfield, Washington County, WI, and in the 1870 and 1880 censuses of Yorkville, Racine, WI. Where were they before that?

Abby Ann is possibly the daughter of Caleb and Eliza (Payson) Cook, who went to Cuyahoga County, OH c1834 from CT. I don't have info on when or where she and James Ball were married. I would appreciate that info if anyone has it.

I am not related by blood, but am interested through a collateral connection with the Foxwell family. My great-grandfather [William Foxwell] had a sister, Avis Foxwell, who married a probable brother of Abby Ann Cook...Wells M. Cook... and he [William Foxwell] had a brother, John Foxwell, who married Mary Jane Ball, the daughter of Abby Ann and James Ball. I have had some correspondence with a descendant of another of James and Abby Ann's daughters, Ann Eliza, who married Reuben Rice.

Thanks in advance for any information provided.
