- SPECIAL EXCEPTION
Randall Dwyer was the nephew of John and Kate Corbett. His
parents died when he was a young boy and John and Kate took
him in. There was no formal "adoption," but Randall was raised
as a Corbett. Catherine Corbett Moser told me that when she was
a young teen a woman came visiting and said to Catherine that she was so lucky to have five brothers. Catherine corrected her to say she had six brothers. The woman replied, no, only five, Randall isn't
your brother. Catherine was shocked, hurt and very angry at her mother over not telling her this. She had no idea.
I have included Randall and his descendants in this directly line
of John and Kate for this reason.
