      George Corbett (sometimes spelled Corbitt)
      George Corbett (picture # 5) was born in Co. Monaghan Ireland June 26 1824. He was the son of James Corbett and his wife Elizabeth. In about 1846, James, Elizabeth and their family arrived in Canada. Soon thereafter, they purchased part of a "clergy grant' near Poonamalee Rd outside Smiths Falls . George is listed on the 1850 census of Jefferson Co NY living in the household of a man called Massey. One of the other residents in that household is also a witness on the marriage certificate - Labue (Laboo). George's age is listed as 22 which would have made his birth date 1828. I have used the 1824 date since it is the one recorded in George and Sarah Rachel's bible. George died Jan 24 1900 at the age of "almost 4 score" and is buried in St. John's Cemetery Smiths Falls with his wife Sarah and 3 of their first 4 children all of whom died as infants.

      Sarah Rachel Shaw
      Daughter of Ann ROGERSON and John SHAW (see SHAW page for more info) .
      Sarah (picture # 7) was born Feb 12 1831 in St. Andrews, Argenteuil Quebec. Moved to Pamelia NY (near Watertown) as a young adult. She appears to have gone there to join some of her siblings as we have record of Henry being there at that time as well as Maria. She married George CORBETT (sometimes spelled Corbitt) October 4 1853 in Watertown NY and they moved to Smiths Falls almost immediately. They had a large family. Stephen G Shaw, Sarah Rachel's next youngest sibling, was the witness at the wedding.
