William GRIFFIN
Margaret CORBIN
WARNING:  Two different William GRIFFINs and two different Margaret CORBINs are being mixed up here, mistakes that are now in print (see Source 2), which is going to make it very hard to stamp them out.  The one solid fact here is that there was a William GRIFFIN who married a Margaret CORBIN in Stafford Co., VA, in 1725 (see Source 1).  

1.  The groom in this marriage cannot be the William GRIFFIN (1742-1793) who was a son of Leroy GRIFFIN (1711-1750) & Mary Ann BERTRAND because that William was born too late.

2.  The bride in this marriage cannot be the Margaret CORBIN (b. ca. 1730s) who was a daughter of John CORBIN III (b. 1696/7) because she, too, was born too late..

The William GRIFFIN involved here may be the one born ca. 1700, but the secondary sources making him the groom in this marriage still commit the error of making the bride the daughter of John CORBIN III, which is a biological impossibility.  The bride has to be some other Margaret CORBIN.

Husband:  William GRIFFIN III
Birth:  ca. 1700, Sittenbourne Parish, Richmond Co., VA
Father:  William GRIFFIN II (c1665-1725)
Mother:  Anne BERGER (c1669->1725)
Marriage:  6 Apr 1725, St. Paul's Parish, Stafford Co., VA
Wife:  Margaret CORBIN
Birth:  ca. 1704-6

The average woman marries at the age of 19 and is four years younger than her husband.

The author did not routinely put surnames in all-caps, so I have converted them to make for easier scanning for names.
p. 5 11.  John5 CORBIN III (Elizabeth4 SMITH, Grace3 BALLARD, Anne2, William1 [THOMAS]) was born in 1696/97 at VA.5  He died before 2 Nov 1758 at King George Co., VA...

He his (sic) wife is unknown.  He left a will at King George Co., VA...

Known children of John5 CORBIN III include these...
 
  34.   viii.   Margaret CORBIN was born at VA. She married William GRIFFIN, son of Leroy GRIFFIN and Mary Anne, on 6 Apr 1725 at Stafford Co., VA; in St. Paul's Parish.17,18

Transcriber's Note:  We know from John's will that he had a daughter, Margaret, but she cannot have been the Margaret CORBIN who was married in 1725 because this woman was probably born ca. 1706, which means she cannot have been the daughter of a man born in 1696/7!
