Dora was born February 1, 1877, in Scotts Bay Road, Canning, Nova Scotia. Like the other children, she was delivered at home with a midwife instead of at a hospital.
Her birth certificate application, filed in 1945, includes an affadavit from her uncle C.C.(?) Corkum who says he was there at the birth, while boarding at the house.
This application has her middle name as Lila, but her marriage certificate has it as Delilah. C.C. Corkum was a witness and J.P. Corkum was the minister?
She married Alfred Corbin from Berwick in 1905. They lived in Aylesford, Nova Scotia.
Unlike some of her sisters, she stayed in Nova Scotia all her life.
