Corbin family in Halifax County, NC

On October 22, 1784, the North Carolina General Assembly passed 'An Act to ascertain the number of White and Black Inhabitants, and the Citizens of every age and condition in the State.' The census was taken in 1786 and 1787, with the date varying from location to location.

The only Corbins listed as then living in North Carolina were three households in Halifax County - those of Charnel Corbin in District 1, and Mathuel Corbin & William Corbin in District 2.
