I am wondering if there is any info on who CORBMAN’s POINT on FRANKLIN ISLAND a is named after....my maiden name is CORBMAN and I am the very last of the family in Canada. I did not know of this point/Franklin Island, so am very curious....I do know that Arthur Barrett CORBMAN & family lived in the area until about 1907 when the emigrated to the United States....I think he was a farmer but don’t where he may have had property. Any info greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Doris

    Allen, many thanks for your reply/info…but was the point named for your GGfather???
    Did he perhaps farm in that area??? I did know that the family emigrated to the USA…are you there or in Canada??? Could we discuss further via regular email???For clarity your GGfather Jacob and my GGfather Daniel were brothers who married sisters…Jacob married Amanda Jean WEEKS and Daniel married Almirante Mary WEEKS…all were from Prince Edward County, Ontario.Best regards!doris
