William CORBIN
Elizabeth SPINKS
WARNING:  there is some kind of mixup between this page, the page for William CORBIN & Rosanna, and the page for Ralph CORBIN & Rachel, specifically about the children, especially Rosey.  Caveat emptor until I sort out what's correct here.
Husband:  William CORBIN
Birth:  Mar 1722/3, King George Co., VA
Death (Revolutionary War):  10 Dec 1777
Military Service:  Revolutionary War:  8th Virginia Rgmt.
Father:  Samuel RIDGEWAY
Mother:  Elizabeth CORBIN
Marriage:
Wife:  Elizabeth SPINKS
Birth:  18 Aug 1745, St. Paul's Parish, King George Co., VA
Death:  1779
Father:  John SPINKS
Mother:  Rosamond CORBIN

There's a huge age difference between William and Elizabeth.  Did he have a prior wife?  Has a generation been skipped?

Children:
1?  William CORBIN not the William7CORBIN indicated below by Corbin (2009:12)
2.  Elizabeth CORBIN, bap. 20 Apr 1760, Bristol Parish, Dinwiddie Co., VA
3.  [Rosamond?] "Rosey" CORBIN, b. 27 Feb 1764, Bristol Parish, Dinwiddie Co., VA; m. 4 Mar 1800, Samuel JOHNSON
Keywords for search engines:  genealogy; USA, US, United States, Virginia

Sources (n.b., Bristol Parish was eventually divided between Henrico, Prince George, and Dinwiddie Cos., VA):

1.  Kenneth Corbin.  2009.  The Leaves of the Corbin Tree.  Vol. 1 of 2.  Self-published, Louisville, KY:
The author did not routinely put surnames in all-caps, so I have converted them to make for easier scanning for names.
p. 12 35.  William6 CORBIN (Elizabeth5 [CORBIN], Elizabeth4 SMITH, Grace3 BALLARD, Anne2, William1 [THOMAS]) was born illegitimate in Mar 1722/23 at King George Co., VA.  He married Elizbeth SPINKS, daughter of John SPINKS and Rosamond CORBIN.  He died on 10 Dec 1777 at age 54; while in service during the Revolutionary War.37... in the 8th Va Regiment.52,37

Eliabeth SPINKS was born in 18 Aug 1745 at King George Co., VA; in St. Paul's Parish.17  She died in 1779...

The three known children of William6 CORBIN and Elizabeth SPINKS were as follows:
 
+ 113.   i.   William7 CORBIN Sr. was born before 1767 at Culpeper Co., VA.
  114.   ii.   Elizabeth CORBIN was christened on 20 Apr 1760 at Dinwiddie Co., VA: at the Bristol Parish.
  115.   iii.   Rosey CORBIN was born on 27 Feb 1764 at Dinwiddie Co., VA; recorded in the Bristol Parish records.  She married Samuel JOHNSON on 4 Mar 1800.

In William7's own entry, the author actually says, "He is listed as a son of David CORBIN in 1787 at Culpeper Co., VA."  Y-DNA testing of a patrilineal descendant of William7's son, Elliott8, proves he is a genetic CORBIN, not a RIDGEWAY.  Our subject may have had a son named, William, but he is not William #113.
