I have an Ester/Easter Holdway (born about 1745 -- ?) married into my husband's Corbin/Gaunt line. She married Peter Corbin (1745, VA -- between 1780 &1788, Culpeper Co., VA). Peter Corbin is the brother of Catherine Corbin Gaunt, my husband's thrid great grandmother.

December 28, 1780 deed lists wife as Easter

I received information that her father was a Timothy Holdway and her mother was Bridget unknown surname.

Ester and Peter Corbin had at least two children:
#1 -George Lee Corbin (1763 -- before 1827) who married Sarah Sally Jennings.

Mosby's Admr. v. Corbin's Admr., 10 Ky., (3 A. K. Marshall) 1140, Law Suit shows his eight children as his heirs, 1827, indicating his was deceased.

Culpeper Co., VA Deed Bk AA, pg 525 William Corbin, No. 13, purchased the interest of his co-heirs in certain land which his father, No. 4, owned at his death; and, in that deed, the grantors are described as follows:
John Corbin and Frances, his wife, of Culpeper Co., Va.
Lewis Corbin and Elizabeth, his wife, of Bourbon Co., Ky.
William Gant and Ann, his wife, of Stafford Co., Va.
Isaiah Corbin and Lydia, his wife,
Benjamin Corbin and Nancy, his wife,
John Walker and Margaret, his wife,
Andrew Gant and Catherine, his wife, and
George Corbin and Sally, his wife, all of Culpeper Co., Va

#2- Phillip Corbin (born abt 1766 - ?) who married Sarah Thompson (this information I have no documentation on)

I also found this piece of information, but I don't know if it is the same Timothy Holdway.
