and many of his brothers and sisters, had moved to Clinch County, GA, in
the vicinity of Mudd Creek. He later resided in southwestern Coffee County,
in
that portion which later became Atkinson County, near the town of
Willocoochee (GMD 1026). His brothers and sisters who moved to this area
were: 1 - Calvin (Volume IV), 2 - Thomas (Volume V), 3 - Allen (Volume I),
4- Eliza, 5 - Nancy, 6 - Henry, 7 - Monroe, and 8 - Wealthy Corbitt.
He married first on February 17, 1866, Rocanne Summerlin, daughter of Allen

Summerlin and Anna (Atwood) Summerlin (Volume II) who came here as pioneers

from Bulloch County, GA.
They had the following children (as listed on the family group sheet).
His first wife died on March 18, 1882. He married Mary Anne Roberts on May
21, 1882. She was the daughter of Robert Roberts (Volume III). Her date of
birth was December 3, 1853. To them were born the following children (as
listed on the family group sheet).
Colonel Washington was also the father of W. J. Corbitt, mother not known.
On August 17, 1857, he enlisted in the Seminole War in Tallahassee, FL, for

six months. Colonel was discharged at Fort Brooke, FL, on January 29, 1858.

Colonel Washington Corbitt served the Confederacy in Company H, 29th
Georgia Regiment and mustered as 3rd Lieutenant. This regiment saw much
hard
servicein the battles around Atlanta in 1864, in which many of it's
officers and
men were lost. Colonel W. served through to the end of the war and was in
command of the company when it was dispersed at Macon, GA.
Colonel Washington Corbitt died on February 27, 1915, followed by his
