Reuben J. CORBIN
Hannah Jane WIDMEYER
Husband:  Reuben J. CORBIN
Birth:  1811 to 1825, VA [now WV?]
Death:  1880-1900, presumably in Morgan Co., WV
Occupation:  laborer

Reuben's birthyear varies wildly in the censuses.  If we go by the fact that, on average, men are four years older than their wife and are age 23 at first marriage, then one of the later birthyears is more likely.  Note that Hannah is close to the average for females, which is being age 19 at first marriage.
