|Transcriber's Note: We know from our subject's
will that he had a daughter, Margaret, but she cannot have been the Margaret
CORBIN who was married in 1725 because this woman was probably born ca.
1706, which means she cannot have been the daughter of a man born ca. 1697!
Please see family group sheet of William
GRIFFEN & Margaret CORBIN for further details. Please note
that in his will, John's three daughters, Alice, Milla, and Margaret, are
still surnamed CORBIN, meaning they were still unmarried as of the date
he wrote his will.
