David Charles 'Charley' Corbett was the son of Mary E. Blair (1845-Aft.1900) and James V. Cobbett (1840-1919).

He married Jeanette "Jennie" Hillard (1870-1942) on December 30, 1897 in Butler County, Pennsylvania.
Children:
Jonathan James (1898-1978)
Donald Logue (1899-1968)
Thomas R. (1902-1959)
Della Catharine (1903-1980)
Delphine E. "Sarah" (1903-1905)
Steven Brown (1905-1969)
Fred Grant (1907-1963)
Walter Stanley (1913-2004)

His headstone shows 1937 which seems to be incorrect, as his obituary was published in 1936. His father was James V. Corbett and he was David Charles 'Charley' Cobbett/Corbett.
