John shows up first on the property tax lists of 1811 and 1812.  He married Lucinda M(elissa) Nelson, daughter of Covington and Theresa Nelson, 3 Sep 1815.  John died 31 Oct 1847 in California Kentucky and was buried in the Corbin Family Cemetery.  (date comes from tombstone recorded by Wm R Stevens.  It is in conflict with the newspaper article below that states John was deceased by October 1846)

 Lucinda was so heartbroken after her son William Frances was executed during the Civil War that she died a short time after he did in 1863 and was buried in the family cemetery.
