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.

The 1800 census says that Paul had come from Cape Cod, and judging from his age in the censuses in which he appears his approximate birthdate was between 1765 and 1774.

The town records of Dartmouth say that a Paul Myrick, son of Benjamin and Deborah Myrick, was born 25 Dec. 1774. (The year may be incorrect, as he supposedly had a brother born in March of 1775.)  After the death of Benjamin, Paul's mother, Deborah (Peckham) Myrick, married Elihu Coffin in 1792 and moved to Nantucket.

As Paul and Mary (Coombs) Myrick named a son Benjamin, I think it's possible that this was the same Paul Myrick.
