      Quoted from Allied Families (page 113):

      "Note. Of record in Hampshire County, West Virginia, deed book No. 4, page 166, there is a lease dated the 13 May, 1777, from Hugh Murfey to 'William Corbin, son of John.' Other Hampshire County records are as follows:
      Hugh Murfey to William Corbin, deed dated 23 Aug. 1779, recorded in deed book No. 5, page 85, for 133 acres of land on north fork of Little Cacapehon.
      Thomas Collins to David Corbin, deed of 11 Aug. 1772, recorded in deed book No. 3, page 90, for 95 acres of land on Little Cacapehon.
      David Corbin and Bathsheba, his wife, to William Corbin, deed of 15 Jan. 1794, recorded in deed book No. 9, page 310, for 130 acres of land on north fork of Little Cacapehon on each side of the wagon road from Romney to Winchester.
      William Corbin and Susanna, his wife, to David Corbin, deed of 15 Jan. 1794, recorded in deed book No. 9, page 312, for same land described in last above deed.
      The last record of William Corbin and Susanna, his wife, was a deed of 28 Feb. 1794, recorded in deed book No. 9, page 380. This was probably William Corbin No. 26 [son of Ambrose Corbin].
      The children of David and Bathsheba Corbin, from Hampshire County records, appear to have been (1) Milly, (2) Elcy, a son, (3) Isaiah, whose wife was named Nancy, and (4) Daniel, who married Jane ____, and left the following issue: (a) David, whose wife was Catherine, (b) Elizabeth, who married Amelius Powelson, (c) Benjamin, whose wife was Martha, (d) Ann, who married George Evans, and (e) Winney, who married Matthew Doyle.
      Hampshire County early records also reveal the name of Daniel Corbin and Jane, his wife; and Andrew Corbin whose daughter, Margery, married Joseph Nixon.
      Anderson Corbin, of Hampshire County, received a deed from Simon Battin of Chester County, Pennsylvania, dated the 17 Oct. 1773, for land which he, in turn, granted to George Martin by deed of 10 May 1787. Anderson Corbin was placed on the pension roll of 24 Nov. 1832, at age of 69. See Third Biennial Report of W. Va. Dep't of Archives."
