Delilah CORBIN
Husband:  Coleman WOODWARD / WOODARD
Birth:  1809/10/1/2, VA
Death:  1870-80, OH
Occupation:  laborer
Wife-1:  Sarah GREEN
Birth:  1810-15, Huntingdon Co., PA
Death:  by 1840
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  Henry W. GREEN
Mother:  Charlotte/Charlotta CORBIN
Marriage-2:  1 Jan 1840, Hancock Co., OH
Wife-2:  Delilah "Delia" CORBIN
Birth:  1817/8, PA
Death:  in or aft. 1880
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  born in MD
Mother:  born in PA
Children with Sarah GREEN:
  1.  (Daughter A) COLEMAN, b. 1830-35
  2.  (Daughter B) COLEMAN, b. 1830-35

Sarah is said to have had only two children; otherwise, I would have assumed that all four of the children born before 1840 were hers and they well may have been.

Children with ???:
  3.  (Son A) COLEMAN, b. 1835-40
  4.  (Son B) COLEMAN, b. 1835-40

Is the secondary source wrong?  Did Sarah have four children?  Are these Coleman's children from another wife?  Are they Coleman's children, at all?  None of the four appear in the 1850 census.  The girls were old enough to have married, but the boys were not.  Did they die?

Children with Delilah CORBIN:
  5.  Wealthy E. WOODWARD, b. 1840
  6.  William WOODWARD, b. 1841/2
  7.  Benjamin J. WOODWARD, b. 1844/5
  8.  George W. WOODWARD, b. 1847/8; d.s.p. bef. 1860
  9.  John C. WOODWARD, b. Apr/May, 1850
10.  James Lafayette WOODWARD, b. 1854/5; m. Catharine KEGG

I wonder if Sarah and Viola are really are subjects' children.  Delilah was really too old to be having children in the 1860s.
11.  Sarah WOODWARD, b. 1861/2
12.  Viola WOODWARD, b. 1864/5

The enumerator appears to have royally botched this record, still, how could it be anyone else but our subjects?  Helen is Benjamin's wife (in 1880 census).
