Pictured in this photograph left to right are James Brown (seated in wagon), Samuel E. Corbin, Simon Corbin, and Richard Corbin (on horseback) at a mill operated by Simon Corbin at the time. The mill was built by John Graham, who immigrated with his wife to Ohio from Ireland. They settled first in Ashtabula, Ohio ca. 1819, and moved to Worthington in 1837. Graham worked at Whip's Mill which was located on the Olentangy River south of Worthington. The Graham's then moved to Dublin where Graham built this wood frame grist mill ca. 1840 on the west side of the Scioto River, south of Dublin at 5336 Dublin Rd., near the current intersection of Tuttle Rd. and Dublin Rd. The mill eventually came under ownership of Samuel Wright, who passed it on to his daughter, Mrs. Amanda Wright Corbin (b. 1845), wife of miller Simon Corbin (b. 1840). The mill was abandoned ca. 1904 due to the construction of the Griggs Dam in 1908.*

Norris Corbin (b. 1810, d. 1892) and his brother Joseph Corbin (b. 1803, d. 1884) were millers. Both built mills in the 1850s, also located on the Scioto River near Dublin. Simon Corbin was the son of Norris Corbin and his wife Margaret Corbin (b. 1818, d. 1895). Simon's son Sam Corbin (b. 1883, d. 1960) worked as a funeral director in Worthington. He and his wife Cornelia B. Corbin (b. 1887, d. 1978) were the parents of Frank G. Corbin (b. 1910, d. 1978), former member of Worthington City Council, Trustee of Worthington Public Library, and historian for Worthington Historical Society.
