Robert1 DANIELL (c1592-1655) — of Suffolk
The earliest ancestor of THE CORBIN (#95794) was born in Massachusets, so it had been expected he would most likely match descendants of Clement CORBIN, of Brookline, MA, and Woodstock, CT, the major progenitor of CORBIN in New England, a family dubbed the "Muddy River" CORBINs by an early compiler of their genealogy.  As it turns out, though, the Muddy River CORBINs are Haplogroup G2a and our subject is Haplogroup R1b1a2, which rules out any possibility of a near common ancestor.  Our subject does, however, have significant matches with descendants of Henry SHERMAN (c1517-c1590) of Dedham, Essex, England, two of whose grandsons emigrated to New England.  So, it does appear this CORBIN has an NPE, a "non-paternity event" (i.e., a hidden adoption, hidden name change, or illicit paternity), in his patrilineal line and that he is genetically a SHERMAN, not a CORBIN.
The Muddy River CORBINs were known to be in contact with the Dedham SHERMANs in New England because, for example, there is at least one known marriage between a descendant of Henry SHERMAN of Dedham, namely, Charles Henry SHERMAN, and a granddaughter of Philip CORBIN of Danbury, CT, one of the Muddy River CORBINs.
For a complete explanation of the color coding I use in analyzing these test results, please see my page on "Signature Markers" and how to use them.  In a nutshell, the cells in the table highlighted in cyan are modal for Haplogroup R1b.  Cells highlighted in purple are the signature markers for the family.  Isolated brightly colored individual cells highlight mutations exclusive to the particular individual's line, that is, "private" mutations.  The brightly colored cells uniting some lines are the "branching" markers, which server to unite branches of the family.
The red table cells highlight what appears to be a "recLOH" (recombinant loss of heterozygosity) event for Marker YCAIIab.  While it may seem that the paired marker YCAII-b has undergone four mutations (going from 23 to 19), what has really happened is that the 19 allele has overwritten the 23 allele in one mutation event, not four.  To count this as four single-step mutations would over-estimate their genetic distance from the rest of the family.
#95794 and #55991 have undergone deep SNP testing with these combined results:
M207+ M173+ M343+ P25+ M73- M269+ U106- U198- P107- L21+ M65- M153- U152- M126- M160- SRY2627- M37- M222- P66- M18-
The first four positive results prove they are R-1b1.  The negative result for M73 rules out R-1b1a-1, while the positive result for M269 proves they are R-1b1a-2.  The negative results for U106, U198, and P107 prove they are not any form of R-1b1a-2a1a-1a.  The positive result for L21 proves they are R-1b1a-2a1a-1b4.  The next set of negative results redundantly prove they are not some other subclade of P312.  The next set of negative results prove they are not those subclades of L21.  The negative result for M18 redundantly proves they are not R-1b1c-1.
Four SHERMANs have been tested at SMGF (the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation), and two of them match our CORBIN subject.  SMGF tests a slightly different suite of markers, but 34 of them are the same, so some comparison is possible, as shown above.  SMGF tests nine additional markers, which are not part of the FTDNA Standard sets, but these nine can be ordered "a la carte" from among FTDNA's "Advanced Markers."  There is no way to contact SMGF test subjects.  If you are one of these two individuals, please contact me, and please consider joining the Sherman Project and so testing your missing markers.
With thanks to Maurice SHERMAN, administrator of the SHERMAN DNA Project at FTDNA, for his cooperation in supplying information helping me fill in this table.
   
In the lineages above, names in boldface are the immigrants — all to New England in the early 1600s.
The progenitor of these SHERMANs is Henry SHERMAN (c1517-c1590) of Dedham, ESS.  As the nearest common ancestor of these SHERMANs existed well before the appearance of Ira CORBIN, it is Ira who presumably has the NPE.  (I guess if you're going to have an NPE, it's nice to have a good match with a well known family, especially an illustrious one.)
The Hon. Philip SHERMAN (1610-1687) in the lineages above became the first Secretary of the State of Rhode Island in 1639.
Another notable descendant of Henry SHERMAN of Dedham is Sen. Roger SHERMAN (1721-1793), Signer of the Declaration of Independence and (later) U.S. Senator from Connecticut, on this line:
Roger7, William6, Joseph5, Capt. John4, John3, Henry2, Henry1
 

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.
