You're both right to think that these engines were not intended to work at extreme low temps and that's a factor here.
The dry black soot on the plugs is probably just oil getting into the intake thru the breather, maybe check the air cleaner.
On some of the generators I've worked on there was a small plate in the air cleaner cover that slightly restricted air flow into the carb for low temp operation. Both of you might want to try getting a cardboard box quite a bit larger than the generator, cut a couple of holes in it to let exhaust out, and put it over the generator so that the air going into the intake gets heated a little bit by the engine. You'll want to monitor the generator pretty closely so I wouldn't recommend this overnight. You both should also be extra careful about the right amount of oil in the sump and changing it more often than usual.
My thoughts are with you folks,

the gensets on coleman generators are definately nothing to brag about but i would start by checking the windings and make sure the brushes have a clean armature to ride on

Probably its similar to the wiring on page 31 of this manual (pdf page 28) of this manual, reference NGK-7000HE: http://www.electricgeneratorsdirect.com/manuals/NGK%20Generator%20Honda%20engine.pdf
