Children born in PA:
The children's ages vary so wildly from census to census, it's hard to determine when any of them were born, which makes it just about impossible to confidently place any of them in the 1820/30/40 censuses.

Ezekiel CORBIN, b. 1802/3 
.  Benjamin CORBIN, b. 1805-10

.  Elisha CORBIN [twin], b. 1807-15

Said to have had these children

Some sources say Achiah was born ca. 1802 and died 16 Nov 1881 in Miller Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA.  The death date is reasonable, though she was living in Barree Twp. in the 1880 census.  There is no scriptural name, "Achiah," though there is a Greek name, Achaia).
