  2. [S2370] Nannie L Fordyce, Reverend John Corbly, p. 143. "The ancestry of Elizabeth (Tyler) Corbly, the second wife of John Corbly, has not been established. She was a member of one of the Tyler families of Virginia. L. K. Evans in his “Pioneer History of Greene County” speaks of her as “a very amiable and estimable lady. John Corbly and Elizabeth Tyler were married in 1773, probably about April 16, the date that Corbly sold his land in Virginia and later moved his family to Garard s Fort where they lived on the Corbly farm and where their children were born."
