From family tradition, Corbett made a crop at Noonday in the spring and summer of 1930. That fall Corbett worked at a sawmill and planer mill on the Big Eddy River while the three oldest children (Tillman, Walter, and Roy) picked cotton on the land at Noonday that Corbett worked as a sharecropper. The day Corbett died, the misting rain made it impossible to plane lumber at the sawmill. To pass the time, Corbett and some of the other men working at the sawmill went squirrel hunting. Corbett's dog treed a squirrel, which ran into his hole in the tree. In order to get the squirrel, the men cut down the tree. Corbett was standing near the tree when it hit a small sapling which fell on his head, killing him instantly.
