The Corbitts trace back to Barnwell, S.C. Daniel Corbitt was born there about 1752 and he lived until about 1805. He was in the militia in the Revolutionary War. Daniel’s children included Rebecca, John, Sarah, Susanna, Mary, Thomas, Samuel and Ann. Rebecca and Ann married Baxters. John and his wife, Penny, had Daniel, who was born about 1804 and married Mary Bennett. Daniel and Mary moved to Homerville in Clinch County, Ga.

Brinkley Corbitt was also at Barnwell, and he served under Gen. Francis Marion in the Revolution in 1781 and 1782. He provided six beef cattle for continental and militia use. He married Margaret Connell. Brinkley died in 1817. Isham Corbitt was one of his sons and Elisha may have been another.

Isham, who was born at Barnwell in 1777, married Amelia Stokes, who was born in 1779. Isham was in Edgefield County, S.C., in 1800. He took his family to Bulloch County, Ga., about 1803 and he was there at the time of the Georgia land lottery in 1806.

Isham is said to have lived a short time in Hamilton County. Isham’s children were Celia (1798), Wealthy (1801), Harbid (1802), Marshall (1804), Newsom (1806), Martin (1810), Hillman (1813), William (1817) and Amelia (1820). About 1825, Isham “had domestic difficulties” and left his wife, Amelia. He went west and was away for many years. His remaining family took part in the 1827 land lottery under the listing of “Isham Corbitt’s orphans” at Bulloch County. They left that winter for property in Loundes County, Ga., on the east side of the Alapaha River. Many years later, Isham Corbitt returned to his family in Georgia and sought a reconciliation with Amelia. She would not agree to it – until his last illness when she reconciled and “nursed him tenderly.” Isham Corbitt died in the first year of the Civil War and Amelia passed away in its last year. They were buried together at the Fender Cemetery. Celia married Michael Stephens, and Harbid married

    Do you have documentation for Joseph, Jr and Judith Brinkley Corbitt? I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find anything!

  2. Pam says:

    I, too, am interested to learn more about Joseph and Judith as well as Joseph’s ancestry. I have a distant cousin in that group of Corbetts who has done extensive research on Joseph and Judith’s descendants. I live in Clarendon County, SC. My branch didn’t travel too far.

  3. Ruth Fox says:

    I am searching for a record that would connect Amelia Corbitt dob 1815 [GA?] dod 1852 GA to her father Isham Corbitt. I have searched extensively and cannot find anything. Any Help will be much appreciated.

    • Pam Scott says:

      Where did you find your info on Joseph and Judith?

      • Ruth Fox says:

        Pam:
        Not sure what you mean regarding Joseph and Judith. We are searching the lineage from Allen Corbitt 1866-1900/father Allen Corbitt 1827-1891/married Amelia Corbitt [cousin] dob 1815-dod 1850/her father Isham Corbitt 1777-1861/his father Brinkley Corbitt 1745-1816. We are trying to document Amelia as the daughter of Isham. Ruth

  4. Pam Scott says:

    Ruth, I suppose I was thinking that you were the one in charge of this site. I had read Margaret’s earlier post (May 6, 2012) regarding Joseph Corbett and his wife Judith Brinkley. My apologies.
