Ralph CORBIN III
Rachel __?__
WARNING:  There is some kind of mixup between this page, the page for William CORBIN & Elizabeth SPINKS, and the page for William CORBIN & Rosanna, specifically with regard to the child, Rosey.  Caveat emptor until I can get it sorted out.

If Rachel was having children into the late 1770s or early 1880s, she cannot have been born much before 1740, which means there's a huge age difference between Ralph and Rachel.  Normally, such an age difference indicates either there was a prior wife or a generation has been skipped.

Husband:  Ralph CORBIN III
Birth:  ca. 1716, Accomack Co., VA
Death:  27 Jan/Feb 1800, Accomack Co., VA
Father:  Robert CORBIN I
Mother:  Ann __?__
Marriage:
Wife:  Rachel __?__
Birth:  ca. 1741
Death:  1810-18

The average age for a woman at first marriage is 19; the maximum age for a woman to birth her last child is usually between 40 and 43.

Children born in Accomack Co., VA:
1.  Leah CORBIN, b. 12 Aug 1761; m. Maddux FISHER
2.  Sarah "Sallie" CORBIN, b. ca. 1762; d. bef. 1800; m1. William BROADWATER; m2. 1790, Joseph BROADWATER
3.  Robert CORBIN II, b. 3 Feb 1764
4.  Susanna / Susannah CORBIN, b. ca. 1765; m. George M. CROSSWELL
5.  Coventon CORBIN, b. 1765-70
6.  George CORBIN, b. ca. 1775; d. 1823, Accomack Co., VA; m. Nancy STERLING
7.  Rosanna / Rosannah "Rosey" CORBIN, b. 30 Jul 1777; m. Samuel JOHNSON
8.  Lavinia CORBIN, b. 1775 or ca. 1782
9?  Elizabeth CORBIN, b. ca. 1792; m. William DIX

  Lavinia is said to have married twice, once in Sep 1796 and again in Nov 1796.  I find it hard to believe that such a short period of mourning was observed, so are two Lavinia CORBINs being mixed up here?  Or is one of the dates wrong?
  It is virtually impossible for one woman to have children over a span of 31 years (the usual maximum span of fecudity is 23 years).  Either Elizabeth's birthyear is wrong or she's not their daughter.
