*Everyone in Robert's family was given birthplace "VA" in the 1850 census, but birthplace "PA" in 1860, so obviously, for that and other reasons, "VA" was a mistake.

Without knowing the birthdates of these children, it's impossible to place them in the above sequence:
.  Nathan CORBIN
.  William CORBIN
.  Benjamin CORBIN
.  Abram CORBIN
.  David CORBIN
.  Elizabeth CORBIN
.  Mary CORBIN

*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."
