Paul Revere Corbett
Paul and his brothers were born in Allen, Oklahoma. Sister Alfreda Corbett related how the family left Oklahoma @ 1928 and drove to Waco, TX in a covered wagon, pulled by 2 mules, Red and Beck. Our dad (William Harley Corbett) found a job at a cement plant outside Waco, TX, about 7 miles and that area is where all of us grew up. Mom and pop were always moving around in different towns and states.

Paul graduated from high school in Lorena, TX.

Paul enlisted in the Army Air Corp, 1940-1943, suffered injuries while in service and witnessed his senior officer shot & died next to him; was sent to Guam for rehab, then to Texas for further medical rehab.

After the service, he worked for Pacific Air; then had a career in the aerospace industry as a technical engineer, and as an engineer in other industries.

Paul and wife Doris (Warren) had 4 living children (unnamed baby girl died at birth): Carol Sue Ellis, Anita Diane Strack, William "Bill", and Patricia Ann Misczuk.
Parents: William Harvey Corbett and Flora Leah Holeman. Siblings: Leslie Robert Corbett (NV), Harvey Leonard Corbett (AZ), Alfreda Blanche Corbett (ID), and Afton Beatrice Corbett Rutledge (ID).
