origin and disposition of the rebel Joseph Clark of Gagetown, 1783

I have traced roots back to Levant, ME that involve a relative of Benjamin Booby (Bubier) of Newtown , two Joseph Clarks, Aaron Clark, and Ichabod Clark. The younger Joseph , Aaron, and Ichabod were likely born in Sudbury County c. 1776. Their records in the 1800 census of Levant all say "from St John" and the town history of levant mentions Joseph (the elder) as the first settler, after coming from St John after the affairs of Ft Cumberland. Major Studholme's reports made it clear benjamin Bubier and Joseph Clark might best catch the next sloop down the river.

so, I suppose I know where they went, other than a decade gap. I can trace other Bubiers to Boston's north shore, but the origins of Joseph Clark seem as slippery as ever.

1) is he the errant son of Joseph and Widow Clark of upper Maugerville?
If so, where were they from? If not, how can I tell where he is from?
2) spouse? Married in Canada or came with him?
3) birth records for Joseph the younger, Ichabod, Aaron and any others?
4) did he fly by night, leave in chains, or was it a mutually aggreable dismissal? :)
