My husband's Corbin/Gaunt line is through this JOHN CORBIN.

His son, JOHN (1698, VA -- 1758, King George Co., VA) and unknown wife, had a son, JOHN who married FRANCES FANT.

JOHN's brother, WILLIAM, (my husband's line) married FRANCES's sister, SARAH. WILLAIM & SARAH had a son, JOHN M. CORBIN (1757, VA -- 1/16/1813, Culpeper Co., VA). His wife was FRANCES THATCHER who died 5/1/1814. This JOHN M. CORBIN is the brother of my husband's 3rd great grandmother, CATHERINE CORBIN, who married ANDREW GAUNT.

Culpeper Minute Book No. 8, page 8, shows that on 21 Mar. 1814.
