Listed one line below Micajah CORBIN, which has led to an assertion that our subject is Micajah's brother, but they are 1st cousins, not siblings. 

7.  Messages in the Corbin Family Genealogy Forum (online at GenForum.com), especially this one:
I have Shadrach's dates as 1766-1840 and Elizabeth's as 1773-1813. I don't have a place of death for either of them. Nor do I know Shadrach's parents. In a grandson's bio it says "his first ancestor in America was Henry Corbin, of Warwickshire, England, who settled in Westmoreland County, Virginia, in 1650".

Shadrach and sons are in Huntingdon County, PA in the 1830 census.
Shadrach's 7 children as named in the probate of their grandfather David Proudfoot (christening dates from church records) were:

Eliza CORBIN
Abraham CORBIN christened 22 Aug 1796 
David CORBIN christened 24 June 1798
Nathan CORBIN christened 1 Sep 1800
John CORBIN b. 1803
Agnes CORBIN christened 27 April 1806

The descendants of Henry CORBIN of Hall End, Warwickshire, and Virginia are well known, and Shadrach isn't one of them.  The given names Shadrach, Abraham, David, and Nathan are common among the Baltimore CORBINs, but at least so far and to me, unknown among the Hall End CORBINs.  Update:  Y-DNA testing has shown the Baltimore CORBINs are not related to the Hall End CORBINs.
