Corbley, John

Corbley, John a Baptist minister, was born in England in 1733. He came to America and took up his residence in Virginia, where he gave himself to the work of the ministry. In 1768 he was forced to leave the state, on account of the persecutions which were inflicted upon the Baptists. He went to South- western Pennsylvania, and assisted in establishing churches in that region. The Goshen Church in Green County called him to be its pastor in 1775. While here his wife and five children were killed by the Indians. After a life of great usefulness he died in 1803. See Cathcart, Baptist Encyclop. page 277. (J.C.S.)
