Source: patron submission
This source is the only one naming the unnamed son of Silas & Anna (FISKE) CORBIN born 13 Mar 1789 as our subject.

1b.  Email from Dennis Gebhardt (summarized by DGM):
The will and land records of Silas CORBIN, Sr., list his children, and they do not include a Silas J. CORBIN, so the above PRF record is in error.

1840 GA Emanuel Co. Roll 41 pp. 202A-202B Ln. 30 Silas Corbin 000 001 - 300 001 no slaves 0101000
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = Silas
3 females 4 or under 1835-1840 = Daughter
= Wealthy (b. 1837/8)
= Lucinda (b. 1835/6)
1 female 30-39 1800-1810 = Mariah (b. 1812/3)
1 person employed in agriculture
1 person employed in manufactures and trades
It looks like both Silas and Mariah are in the wrong age-classes, but this has to be our subject.

This enumerator had terrible handwriting, possibly to cover up his inability to spell.  You can't take his entries literally (e.g., most of the men on the page had occupation "Famer" or "Faner").  In 1850, William EDENFIELD was living in Emanuel County with his wife, Margaret.  There doesn't seem any obvious connection between the families, then again, we don't know Margaret's maiden name.

7.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #22 of 74):  Swainsboro P.O., Division 46, Emanuel Co., GA, Roll M593_148, p. 337B, PN 22, 147/147, enumerated 26 Jul 1870, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1870 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
Faircloth Andrew 18 M W works in Farm     Ga
_________ Temperance 17 F W Keeps house     "
Corban Mariah 50 F W on the County     "
Tempy is fibbing about her age (she should be 21), and so is Mariah (she should be 57).
