So far, we have just one CORBIN who is any form of Haplogroup I2.  It turns out, he is a strong DNA match with a WOODRING, indicating he has an NPE (non-paternity event) in his patrilineal line. 

This WOODRING/WOTRING family so far appears to all descend from Paul VAUTRIN of Alsace, France.  There is no surname project for WOODRING, so I have invited these individuals to join the CORBIN project.  One has accepted the invitation, and I hope the others do as well.  The data for all of them is included in the table, below.

One of the WOODRINGs has been deep SNP tested, with the result that he is L160+ (see detailed results, below), which FTDNA classifies as I2a1b.  The Y-Haplogroup I2a Project at FTDNA is using a  different version of the Y-DNA haplotree than either FTDNA or ISOGG, so they have this group labeled "I2a1b1* (M26+ L160+ Z106-)."

Haplogroup I is found almost exclusively in Europe where it is represented overall in about 20% of the population, making it the second most common haplogroup in western Europe, after R1b.  Hg I has a broad distribution, from the British Isles east to the Ural Mountains of Russia and south to Anatolia and the Mediterranean Sea.  Hg I is divided into two main subclades:  I1, which is the most common form of Hg I in northwestern Europe, and I2, which is the most common form of Hg I in southeastern Europe.  In terms of frequency, subclade I1 is much more common than I2.

Distribution and Frequency of Y-DNA Haplogroup I-
Distribution Map of Haplogroup I, released to the public domain by Hxseek at Wikipedia.
Image released to the public domain by Hxseek at Wikipedia.
Labels in white are the SNP mutations; percentages are the frequency of Haplogroup I in the population.  SNPs that appear on the map, but not in the chart at the left, are Haplogroup I1.  Hopefully, the map will be updated to include more of the newer SNPs, in particular, L160, though it does at least show M26.  An origin in Alsace, the northeastermost corner of France, is entirely in keeping with being L160+.

Our CORBIN is the grandson of Amanda CORBIN, descendant of Peter CORBIN of Pendleton Dist. [now Pickens Co.], SC.  Because Amanda is female, it was not expected that our subject would be a DNA match for the Pickens County CORBINs, and he isn't.  Nor is he a match for any other CORBIN family so far tested, which again is not unexpected because Amanda CORBIN was apparently unmarried at the time she birthed her son, John A. CORBIN, in 1899. 
Our subject is, however, a close match (65/67) with the WOODRING/WOTRING descendants of Paul VAUTRIN of Goerlingen, Alsace.  In the 1900 census, shortly after the birth of her son, John, we do, in fact, find Amanda CORBIN's household listed next to that of a Henry WOODRING, a descendant of Paul VAUTRIN.  If Henry was not John's father, then some male closely related to him surely was.
It is typical for those who are I2a1 (= I-M26) to be 11/21 at YCAIIa/b (green table cells), which is a departure from the more usual 21/21.  Because the 11/21 values are nearly universal in the subclade, the assumption here is that the change from 21 to 11 probably happened in a single, ten-step mutation event in the distant past.  Because this mutation probably happened in a single event, it only counts as 1 in a calculation of GD (genetic distance).
It also appears #22499, one of the WOODRINGs, has had his own multi-step mutation, but of a different kind, known as a RecLOH (a recombinant loss of heterozygosity).  In a RecLOH, one allele writes over its pair in a single mutation event during recombination, a stage in the process of spermatogenesis (sperm formation).  In this case, the 21 allele wrote over the 11 allele (red table cell).  I would encourage the other WOODRING and the WOTRING to upgrade to at least 37 markers to see if they share this mutation with #22499 and the mutation at DYS570 (yellow table cell).
WOODRING #22499 has been deep SNP tested with these results:
M170+ P19+ M258+ P38+ M253- M307- P30- M72- M21- M227- P37.2+ M26+ M161- L160+ M223- Z106-
The first set of positive results prove he is Hg I, while the first set of negative results proves he is not Hg I1 or any of the tested subclades.  The positive result for P37.2 proves he is I2a, and the positive result for M26 proves he is I2a1.  The negative result for M161 proves he is not I2a1a, while the positive result for L160 proves he is I2a1b.  The negative result for M223 redundantly proves he is not I2b1.  He is also negative for the Z106 SNP, which is downstream of L160, though it does not yet show on the FTDNA haplotree.
CORBIN #212910 has been deep SNP tested with these, not unexpected, results:
M26+ M160+
The positive result for M26 proves he is I2a1; the positive results for L160 proves he is I2a1b
           

What constitutes a match?
Matches in other surnames are usually mere coincidence, so please ignore them I'll let you know when you shouldn't!
For 12 markers: 9 or less is a non-relative; for 10-12 markers, please see this table compiled by FTDNA.
For 25 markers: 21 or less is a non-relative; for 22-25 markers,
For 37 markers: 31 or less is a non-relative; for 32-37 markers,
For 67 markers: 59 or less is a non-relative; for 60-67 markers,
For 111 markers: 100 or less is a non-relative; for 101-111 markers,
For any test:  0 matching markers, please contact NASA.
