Regarding the 1820 census, the Nathan CORBIN enumerated on p. 136 (see Source 3 below) is said to be the Nathan CORBIN who married Mary HARDWICK, but these numbers do not fit his household, while they do fit our subject's household.   These households are easy to confuse because, with regard to the parents and the male children, the households are the same.  It is only the female children that are different:  they had only one daughter born before 1820, while our subject is the one with three daughters born before 1820.

I find the given name unreadable, but both Genealogy.com and Ancestry.com indicate there is a Nathan CORBIN on the page.  Said to be in Millersburg, but that appears to be an indexing error.

It appears married daughter, Sarah Ann (CORBIN) WHALEY, has returned home with her two children or is it three children?

James H  " 35 M   Farmer   "
Nicholas " 29 M   "   "
Thomas   " 22 M   "   "
Eleanor  " 38 F       "
Mary is indexed as age 38, but it's really 58.  Thomas should be 32, not 22.

Mary Corbin 70 F   Farmer 400 7000 Va
Elizabeth " 41 F         "
Ellen     " 40 F         "
If this Elizabeth is Mary's daughter, where are her children and why is she not surnamed RANK?  Ellen is fibbing about her age.
