      William G. Corker's marriage bond is dated 27 Mar. 1837, Austin Tate, surety; William married Susannah Tate on 10 Apr. 1837 by James M. Bagby, minister. (William s/o William Corker; Susannah d/o Nathaniel Tate dec'd).

      As noted above in the previous section 4.11:
      1838, Sep. 3 Louisa Co. . . William G. Corker & Susan his wife who was a Tate & Mildred Tate, heirs & distributees of Nathaniel Tate dec'd to Wm. W. Anderson for $30. . . 2/12 undivided interest in the tract which Nathaniel Tate dec'd died seized & on which sd William G. Corker at present resides (DB W p.290)
      .
      It is not clear when William and Susannah vacated Nathaniel Tate's land or where they were living in the decade that followed until the following land purchase was made:
      1857, Dec. 31 Louisa Co. . . Ambrose & Elizabeth Lacy, Robt. T. & Nancy T. White to William G. Corker for $600. . . 68 a. adj. Dr. Wm. Meredith & c. being devised to Nancy T. White & after her death to Eliz. Lacy by will of Dorothy Pearson dec'd (DB EE p.184).

      Following this land purchase, on 25 Jan. 1858, William made a Living Trust to his wife Susannah.

      Susannah Corker extended the land holding in 1871 by purchasing an additional 5 acres adjoining her land:
      1871, Mar. 1 Louisa Co. . . L. W. & Martha J. Hill to Susan A. Corker for $37.50. . . 5 a. lot adj. sd Hill & Corker (DB HH p.745). The land was sold by heirs to Wm. Daily in 1907, making 73 a. in all (DB 26 p.60).
