Paul myrick and son in law Josiah harding

Paul Myrick married Mary Coombs in 1798 on Vinalhaven. They had 10 children and he was in 3 censuses. I need proof of his birthdate so I can connect him to the Paul Myrick who was born in 1744 in Dartmouth,Mass. Lucinda Myrick, his daughter married Josiah Harding on Vinalhaven in 1820. I need proof of his birthdate and father and grandfather's names. find a grave is a guess that he is joshua's son.
