7.  LDS.  Family Search: Internet Genealogy Service:  AF - Ancestral File (online at FamilySearch.org). 

8.  Broderbund.  World Family Trees.  Vol. 40, Pedigree No. 356.  Says "Mary" is "Mary Jane" and that her parents are Edward & Jane (WILKINSON) CORBIN, but no child, Mary, is mentioned in Edward's will.  There is another Edward CORBIN (wife Mary), who is probably either the son or nephew of the Edward married to Jane, who did mention a daughter, Mary, in his will, and I believe he is likely the father of our subject. 

9.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com).

10.  Apparently, there is a biographical sketch of our subject in J. Simpson Africa's book, History of Huntingdon and Blair Counties, Pennsylvania (1883, L.H. Everts, Philadelphia). [not seen]
