Wife is unnamed in Torrey's record on 324, though Francis is the widow Clark when she married Dewey in 1639. According to the History of Ancient Windsor, "Joseph Clark had Joseph and Mary, both baptised Sep. 30, 1638; this may be the Joseph Clark whom the History of Dorchester says was at that place early, Dr. Harris thinks in 1630."
