Dorcas SHAW
Husband:  David G. CORBIN
Birth:  1820/1, PA
Occupation:  laborer

Dorcas's mother, Sarah (GREENLAND) SHAW, was the daughter of Nathan GREENLAND & Sarah Ruth CORBIN.  Sarah Ruth was the daughter of Benjamin CORBIN & Sarah SIAS.  I'm going to assume, for the present, that David is related to Benjamin CORBIN because these CORBIN, GREENLAND, and SHAW families intermarried repeatedly.  If David is related to Benjamin, it is most likely as a grandson, but it may be as likely that David is a grandson of Benjamin's brother, William CORBIN, though William was considerably younger than Benjamin, so there are fewer opportunities to fit in a grandson David's age.
