2.  1840 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #9 of 36; official enumeration began 1 Jun 1840; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 IN Fayette Co. Town of Connersville pp. 134 Ln. 1 Joseph H Clark 101 001 - 100 010 _______
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = William (b. 1838)
1 male 10-14 1825-1830 = Son?
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = Joseph (b. 1813
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Daughter?
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Matilda (b. 1818)
If Joseph actually was born earlier than 1813, it's possible for him to have had a son by 1830 from a prior marriage.
