Almost everything that you need is in the published vital records of Bridgewater:

Henry Edwards Scott, Editor, "Vital Records of Bridgewater Massachusetts to the Year 1850," 2 Volumes (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1916)

It is in the public domain and can be downloaded from sites such as the Internet Archive Text Archive and Google Books.

Bridgewater VR has a record of Josiah's marriage. It took place in Plymouth, and the original record is found on p. 88 of:

Lee D. van Antwerp and Ruth Wilder Sherman, Editors, "Vital Records Of Plymouth, Massachusetts, To The Year 1850" (Camden, ME: Picton Press, 1993)

Although Joseph's marriage to Deliverance Orcutt is well established no contemporary record of the wedding has been found.
