Joseph Shute, b. 1780's - Son of Joseph Shute & Sally Mead of Northwood?

Trying to confirm parentage of my Joseph Shute, born during the 1780's (birthyear per census records varies btwn 1783-1786).

After reading several New Hampshire town histories that contained genealogy info on various Shute families, I believe he was the son of Joseph Shute (Sr.) & Sally (Sarah/Mary?) Mead. This couple was married in 1778 in Newmarket and settled in Northwood around 1785 (per History of Newfields). They were included on Northwood federal census records from 1790 - 1810, with 2 males (probably their sons, given the ages). They definitely had one son named John M. Shute. My theory is that "my" Joseph was their elder son. I recently received his death record that gave his birthplace as Northwood. Although it is more likely that he was born in Newfields, but grew up in Northwood, the death record does provide a geographical link to this particular Shute family. Also, if it helps, "my" Joseph had his marriage banns with Prudence Bailey (aka Bayley) announced in Londonderry, NH in 1812.

Many thanks in advance for any help on this puzzle! - Suzanne
