Moses CORBIN
Harriet __?__
WARNING:  there is very poor correspondence between our subject's list of children in the 1850 census and the one in the 1860 census, for which I see no obviously explanation beyond gross enumerator error and/or adoptions.  More evidence is needed to determine exactly who their biological children were. 

NOTICE:  a patrilineal descendant of Simeon Jackson CORBIN, son or nephew of our subject, has been tested for the CORBIN Y-DNA Surname Project, and he is a high level match with Edward CORBIN of Beaufort Dist. [now Hampton Co.], SC.  There are also what appear to be paper connections with the HARVEY family of Barnwell Co., SC, and Columbia Co., FL, suggesting our subject's origin in SC may be Barnwell County. 

Husband:  Moses CORBIN / CORBAN
Birth:  1813-15, SC
Death apparently:  1860-70, Lafayette Co., FL
Occupation:  farmer
Y-DNA Haplogroup:  R-1b1b-2a1a = R-U106

Children:
born in FL, probably in Hamilton Co., FL:
1.  William CORBIN, b. 1837/8
2.  James CORBIN, b. 1840

3.  John Jerden CORBIN, b. 1841/2 
4.  Hezekiah CORBIN, b. 1843-45
5.  Sarah Jane CORBIN, b. 1846/7
6.  Mary CORBIN, b. 1848/9

Children with them in 1860, who were not with them in 1850, but who are said to be their children:

Henry CORBIN, b. 1845/6

Keywords for search engines:  genealogy; USA, US, United States, Florida, South Carolina

Sources (n.b., the move from Hamilton to Columbia to Lafayette [now Dixie] Co. is a migration southward down the Suwannee River from the northern state line with Georgia to the Gulf of Mexico; Dixie Co. was formed in 1921 from Lafayette Co.):

This record would make more sense if the ages of the three younger children is wrong; in other words, if they were 6, 4, and 2, meaning they were born after the 1850 census.  Listed next to William G. HARVEY and his family, who are listed two households from son, John CORBIN (see next source).  Also in Lafayette County, son James CORBIN is living with the LOCKELIER family, and son William CORBIN (wife Arletta A. LOCKELIER) is married with two children.  These CORBINs constitute all the CORBINs (or variations) indexed in the 1860 Florida census.

I really don't know what to make of this record, either the relationships or the ages (or both) are wrong.  Are the three youngest children Henry's?  They can't be Harriet's.
