Deans in Chester, Windsor Co., or Vermont in general

I have hit a dead-end in researching my DEAN family heritage.

The wedding certificate of George Elsworth Dean (b.1857, Vermont; d. 1927, California) and Alice Christina Davis (b.1855, WI; d. 1905 WI) lists a Franklin and Elizabeth Dean as parent/witnesses.

I am searching for Franklin and Elizabeth Dean, and their lineage. George's census records indicate Franklin was born in Vermont and Elizabeth in New York (and Vermont).

At the age of 14 George was living with John (B. Chester, Vermont) and Hannah Sparrowck (B. New Hampshire), maternal grandparents of his future wife, in Rock Co WI. George is listed as an adopted son in both of their obituaries.

Alice's father was also born in NY and her mother in NH.

Searches have not yielded anything.

>The family and in-law links to Vermont, NH and NY may provide clues.
>Franklin may be a derivative of the popular name "Benjamin Franklin" Dean.
>I have not been able to access the birth/census records for Chester, Windsor Co to view, in their entirety, for on George Elsworth Dean previous to 1860 nor locate a Franklin or Elizabeth Dean.

Any assistance or links to vital records for Chester, Windsor County c. 1820 to 1880 would be appreciated.
