Notes for Elvira Pamelia Corbin
She was a schoolteacher in Henrietta, Monroe Co., New York, for several years. She moved to Oak Creek (now South Milwaukee), Wisconsin, where her sister had preceded her. There she married Lewis Dwight Hobart.

The line for her in the 1870 census is blank, so the neighbor who supplied it did not know her well as of that time.

Notes for Lewis Dwight (Spouse 1)
Surname changed in April 1831 from Hoar. He was active in the founding and financing of the Oak Creek Congregational Church, along with his father. His mother-in-law, Mercy Corbin, and his sister-in-law, Marilla Corbin, were living with him in Oak Creek at the time of the 1850 census on 17 July 1850. He also had Mathew Johnson, a laborer born in Germany, living with him and presumably helping on his farm. His real estate was valued at $3000 on the census. They moved from Oak Creek to Ripon some time in the Sep 1855 - Aug 1857 period. Operated a store in Auroraville, Wisconsin, 1860-1865 during the Civil War. I did not find him in Aurora Twp. in the 1860 census, nor in either the City of Ripon or Ripon Twp. Where he was living right then is not presently known. The 1870 census information was obviously supplied by a neighbor, as there are many errors. He was clerk for the local school district in Jackson Co. in the 1880s.

Note that O.A. Brittan, the Methodist minister who performed his second marriage, was a family friend (photos in family album), latter resided in Sufern[?], Douglas Co., Wisconsin.

F. G. Hobart5 has birth one year too early.
