  • Other Names*: Daniel Corbit.
  • Obituary*: "DANIEL W. CORBIT, BIG FARMER AND LANDOWNER, DIES
       "Came of Pioneer Stock, Earliest Ancestor Settling Here in 1700
       "FUNERAL SATURDAY
       "Survived by Two Daughters, Mrs. Charles Levis and Mrs. E. L. Duer
       "ODESSA, Del., Sept. 20 [1922]—Daniel Wheeler Corbit, aged 79 years, landowner and well-known throughout Delaware, died at his home here today following a brief illness. Mr. Corbit is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Charles Levis, of Wilmington, and Mrs. E. L. Duer, of Philadelphia.
       "Mr. Corbit came of pioneer stock, his first American ancestor and great grandparent, Daniel Corbit, having settled here in 1700. He was the son of Daniel Corbit, born in 1796, who was a prominent merchant, tanner and farmer. His mother was Miss Eliza Naudain, daughter of Andrew Naudain and sister of Arnold Naudain, at one time United States Senator from Delaware.
       "He was the fourth son and at the age of twelve was sent to the Friends’ Boarding School at Westtown. He also studied at preparatory institutions in Wilmington and Delaware City before entering Haverford Friends’ College as a sophomore.
       "Mr. Corbit ended his studies in 1862, when he began to devote all his time to agricultural pursuits, specializing in peach growing and enjoying great success. He was a Republican by political faith and spent most of his days in Odessa. He never ran for political office.
       "In 1870, he was married to the late Mary C. Higgins, daughter of Anthony C. Higgins, of New Castle county. In 1875 he joined the Presbyterian Church, of which his wife was a member, and for many years was trustee and treasurer of Drawyers’ Church.
       "Funeral services will be held at 1.30 o’clock Saturday afternoon from his late residence. Interment will be in Friends’ Cemetery."13
  • Note*: He was educated at Friends' School in Wilmington, Delaware and at Haverford College and lived in the family mansion in Odessa, Delaware. He was a peach grower, president of New Castle County National Bank, a director of Equitable Trust Company, and a trustee of the New Castle County workhouse. Though originally a Quaker, in 1875 he became a Presbyterian, and for many years he was a trustee and treasurer of Drawyer's Church. He was a Republican "and a progressive citizen, a gentleman of the old School. . . a lover of books and an exemplary citizen."14
