Joseph Bearce/James Bearce????

JOHN from Barnstable, son of a Joseph, and grandson of Austin, who came in the Confidence 1638, m., 1720, Sarah Holmes

I found this reference in the history of Oxford County, ME about Asa Bearce. In our version of the family history Asa is decended through James Bearce and Experience, which seems weak for a variety of reasons.

Could he be through Joseph? One problem with this is:
JOSEPH, Barnstable, s. of the preced. m. 3 Dec. 1675, Martha, d. of
Richard Taylor, wh. d. 27 Jan. 1728, aged 76, had Mary, b. 16 Aug.
1677; Joseph, 21 Feb. 1680; Benjamin, 21 June 1682; Priscilla, 31
Dec. 1683, d. at 3 mos.; Ebenezer 20 Jan. 1685; John, 8 May 1687;
these four s. were bapt. 16 Dec. 1688; Josiah, 10 Mar. 1690, bapt. 10
Apr. 1691; and James, b. 3 Oct. 1692. He already has a John with different dates.
