It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Joseph by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
I had considered that this Joseph Clark could be a match with Clark-26822. The birth and death dates are very close and both were from Connecticut. On closer inspection, they appear to be two different people. I added an LDS reference to this profile showing wives, children and parents which mostly agree with the family connections in this profile. One thing that doesn't agree is a second wive named Lydia Grinnell. There seems to be a possible mixup of some of the children as well. It appears this Joseph Clark had two wives (Rebecca Huntington and Elizabeth Smith) but not Lydia Grinnell.
I think it might make sense to examine the Clark-26822 profile (who was the husband of Lydia Grinnell) and remove Lydia as the wife of this Joseph Clark (Clark-2845).
