Corbett, Ross M., Leatherwood p. o., New Bethlehem, one of the leading and influential men of his county, was born in Clarion township in 1810, and was married in 1834 to Fanny Culbertson Orr, who was born in Clarion county in 1815. They had a family of seven children, four of whom are now living -- Rev. Hunter, Samuel C., Winfield S., and David L. Hunter is a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, and has been a missionary for over twenty years in China. John Newton, the second son, enlisted in the Eleventh Pennsylvania Volunteers, and was killed while in service, in 1864. Samuel enlisted in the same regiment in 1863, and served to the close of the war in Company L, under Captain Loomus's command. Ross M. Corbett was a son of John C. and Mary (Mitchell) Corbett, of Mifflin county, who were married in 1800, and settled in Clarion county in 1801, where they died. They had a family of twelve children, of whom Ross, Isaac, James, Hamilton, Philip, Mrs. Mary Fulton, Mrs. Electa Packer, and Nancy Jane are now living. Fanny was a daughter of Samuel C. and Margaret (Sloan) Orr, who were natives of Westmoreland county, and settled in Clarion county at an early day.

Rockville, named from its exceedingly rocky surface, lies near the center of the township. Ross M. Corbett came here April 22, 1834, and built a sawmill that summer. The next summer he built a grist-mill, commencing, to grind October 3, 1835. Farmers came a great distance to the mill. It was considered first-class, and was run day and night. It has been repaired and kept in running order ever since, and is at present a useful improvement in the community. John Klingensmith, afterwards sheriff of Clarion county, was the first miller. Samuel Fagley is the present miller, having served for twenty years. Mr. Corbett built another saw-mill in 1866. Both are torn away now. He has been fortunate in raising a family potent for good -- Hunter, a missionary in China for twenty-five years, Scott, a wholesale merchant in Wichita, Kan., Lawson, a merchant in Dubois, and Samuel, a farmer, on Squirrel Hill, this township. All have been quite successful.
