Subject: Corbin - update

     After a trip to Kansas over the 4th of July holidays I was able to get
the following about the Corbin family. Most of the Corbins I am researching
are from the Winfield, Cowley County, Kansas area. The Kansas Corbins are 
still a bit of a mystery but their history isn't. As before any help in filling
in current history blanks is greatfully appreciated.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Among some of the papers given to me by my paternal grandmother were the Civil War discharge papers of Americus V. Corbin. I have yet to figure out just how he fits into the family picture. Hopefully someone out there could possibly be of help. This is the information that I have received from the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

   Americus V. Corbin
   born: March 24, 1840
   location of birth: Hancock Co., Ohio
   death: May 3, 1907
   location of death: Winfield, Cowley Co., Kansas

   Company K, 16th Regiment of the Iowa Volunteers.
   Enlisted November 30, 1861
   Re-enlisted same company January 5, 1864
   Taken Prisoner and held at Andersonville Prison - July 22, 1864 to September 19, 1864
   Discharged July 26, 1865

   Wife. 1 ??
   Sodemia Corbin - the first name is very hard to read on the paper work that I 
                    have from the National Archives.
   born: ?
   location of birth: ?
   date of marriage: ?
   location of marriage:?

   Wife  2
   Anna Corbin
   born: ?
   location of birth: ?
   date of marriage: ?
   location of marriage: ?
   date of death: April 22, 1899
   location of death: Winfield, Cowley Co., Kansas
   children: ?

   Wife  3
   Mary Henley of Pueblo Colorado  
   date of marriage: December 10, 1904
   location of marriage: Winfield, Cowley Co., Kansas
   date of death:
   location of death: 
   children: None

   Mary Henly was previously married to Freeman Thirsk who died at Pueblo Colo, 
   April 12, 1902. 

   Paperwork filed by Mary Corbin states that she is the second wife of Americus
   V. Corbin, with Anna Corbin being the first wife. This is a bit of a mystery
   as his enlistment paperwork states his wifes name as above - Sodemia.

   I have no information at all on any children being born to Americus from any
   of his marriages.

   My grandmother, Mary Ellen Corbin was the daughter of John Wesley Corbin and 
   Ida M. ?. She was born June 23, 1897 in Winfield, Cowley Co., Kansas.
   Mary Ellen Corbin married Frederick Ferdinand Lawrenz, December 24, 1913.
   Frederick Ferdinand Lawrenz was born February 1, 1891 in Hope, Dickinson Co.,
   Kansas and died April 29 1929 in Isabel, Kansas. They had one child, Wilburt
   Wesley Lawrenz, born November 7, 1914, married Viola Elizabeth Moomau, February
   4, 1937, and died May 1, 1986 in Gilroy, Santa Clara Co., California. They had
   four children. I'm the third child of that marriage.
   Looking for help in filling the blanks marked ?.  Any help would be greatly
