Eliakim Lyon CORBIN
Lodama RATHBONE
WARNING:  Secondary sources are confusing our subject with Eliakim LYON, son of Lyman & Hannah (CORBIN) LYON.  These are two different men.
Husband:  Eliakim Lyon CORBIN
Birth:  7 Oct 1777, Windham Co., CT
Death:  10 May 1841, McDonough, Chenango Co., NY
Father:  Peleg CORBIN
Mother:  Levina LYON

Given the age difference between Eliakim and Lodama, one would immediately suspect Eliakim had a prior wife.  A prior wife would allow for some additional children born before 1805.

Marriage:  6 Jan 1805, Colchester, New London Co., CT
Wife:  Lodama / Lodamia RATHBUN / RATHBONE
Birth:  2 Sep 1784, Colchester, New London Co., CT
Death:  1864, McDonough, Chenango Co., NY
Father:  Abel RATHBUN (1746-1804) John7, Jonathan6, John5, John4 [the immigrant to RI], Thomas3, Thomas2, William1 RATHBONE of Lancashire, ENG
Mother:  Anna GATES? / GALES? (1755-1813) Thomas1
Children:
born in Otsego, Otsego Co., NY:
1.  Arian / Arrian / Arryan / Ariana CORBIN, b. 1802/3 or 3 Nov 1805

born in Otsego, Otsego Co., NY; baptized 17 Aug 1817, Congregational Church, Exeter, Otsego Co., NY:
2.  Horace CORBIN, b. 10/19 Dec 1806
3.  Abel Rathbone CORBIN, b. 24 May 1808
4.  Lavinia / Lavina CORBIN, b. 7 Jul 1810
5.  Eli Lyon CORBIN, b. 7 Feb 1812

born in Exeter, Otsego Co., NY:
6.  Lucia Amanda CORBIN, b. 31 Dec 1821

Others born in NY; baptized Exeter, Otsego Co., KY:
.  Lurin CORBIN, b. ?; bap. 1 Jul 1806
Harvey B. CORBIN, b. 1804/5?; bap. 1 Jul 1806

Harvey is said to be son of our subject; however, his birthdate cannot be close to his baptismal data because it would be too close to the birth of Horace.  Harvey is 45 in the 1850 census, suggesting he was born in either 1804 or 1805.  Was he a twin of Arian?  Horace cannot have been born in 1807, because then his birthdate would be too close to Abel's.  Is Harvey really their son?  There is room for him in the 1810 census.

The fact that the children were baptized together in 1817 suggests the family moved from Otsego to Exeter in 1817 (and joined a new church).

None of the three born before 1810 is yet married, so it's hard to say who's still at home and who's working out or off to school or whatever.

It's hard to say who's in the household at this point.

Louisa has to be Amanda's mother, Lodamia (RATHBONE) CORBIN.  Frank CORBIN appears to be son of Amanda's brother, Eli Lyon CORBIN.  Lavenia HAMLIN appears to be the orphaned daughter of Amanda's sister, Lavinia (CORBIN) HAMLIN.  I don't know who Mary is.
