Can't find Abram Wesley CORBIN in the index at Ancestry.com, and I tried every variation (and truncation) I could think of, including such strategies as searching on just his age and birthplace.  Update: I did a page-by-page search of Bedford Borough and Bedford Township (all four districts) and did not find either our subject or any "barracks."
