Notes for Sarah Ruth Corbin:
FROM: A BRIEF SKETCH OF CALEB GREENLAND AND HIS WIFE, CHRISTINA CURFMAN, Published in 1924 by F. W. Roher, Son of Eleanor Greenland.

The name Corbin is from the French Corbon, or Corbong. The Corbons were Huguenots. When the Edict of Nantes was revoked in 1685 they, with 400,000 Protestants, fled from France. Clement Corbin came from the west of England to near Boston, Mass., in 1637. This was 48 years before the persecution above referred to.

Benjamin Corbin, 1728-1813, the grandfather of Caleb Greenland, lived in Westminster County, Maryland. He had a brother Abram, who died without children. Another brother, William, born in 1740, married Mary Brown and to them were born eight children, Ellen, Mary, Lydia, Sarah, Nancy, John, David and William.

The elder William Corbin, is said to be the first Corbin to come from Maryland to Pennsylvania, settled in Juniata Township, Huntingdon County, about 1773. The Browns came to Southern Huntingdon County about the same time. Nine of the ten children of Benjamin Corbin came with, or followed, their Uncle William to Pennsylvania.

Benjamin and Abram, are buried in a cemetery four and a half miles N.E. of Westminster, Md.

Baltimore City records show letters testamentary on the estate of Benjamin Corbin June 16, 1813; on estate of Abram Corbin Oct. 7, 1793; and on estate of Edward Corbin Nov. 30, 1770. Edward and Richard were residents of Maryland probably as early as 1700. They may have been brothers, or Richard may have been the son of Edward.

The burial place of the first Corbin pioneer (William) to Pennsylvania is near the Corbin school house in Juniata Township -- a few miles from Huntingdon, Pa. A large iron kettle that he, William, brought with him to this settlement was used to boil water for coffee at the Corbin reunion in 1913.
