Captain William Bobbitt and his wife Nancy were buried in the Bobbitt family cemetery at Fancy Gap Virginia, near Galax. The headstones of many graves have been chipped away by the freezing and thawing of the weather. Many of the stones are no longer readable. Descendants for years have known where the grave-of Captain William Bobbitt was located. Old letters describe the location of the grave as next to the grave of his grandson Caleb Bobbitt Junior.

Descendants and interested Bobbitt family members have commissioned a memorial to be erected over the graves of William and Nancy with a notation of the names of all their children. The Veterans Administration has erected a bronze plaque to note the Revolutionary War service of Captain William Bobbitt.
