Joe:
Corrections to what you have on Joseph CLARKE...
Joseph was born in Newport, 11 February 1642/3. The 2 Apr 1643 date is an
erroneous date listed in Austin's "Genealogical Dictionary of RI" and
discussed in Morrison's "'Clarke' Families of RI." But it is clear that it
is the 11 Feb date, because Joseph himself recorded that date, along with
his marriage and the births of his children, in the record book of
Westerly, where he was town clerk:

Records of the Town of Westerly, Rhode Island, Book 1: "Town Records, Land
Evidence, 1661-1707", FHL Film #0940222
