WARNING:  the dates here don't add up.  If Thomas and Elizabeth weren't married until 1750, then it's doubtful that either Mary or Rawley II is Elizabeth's child.  It is also doubtful that, if Mary & Joseph were married before 1763, she was born as late as 1749 (i.e., that she married at age 14).  What is likely, given the age difference between Thomas & Elizabeth, is that he had a prior wife and the children are hers.

4.  Mary CORBIN, b. 9 Apr 1749; m. bef. 24 Dec 1763, Joseph WILLIAMS
5.  Rawley CORBIN II, b. 1749/50
