"Deceased had been an active Christian and leader in the Baptist denomination for many years, holding membership at his death in the Walnut Street Baptist church, Hillsboro.

Few people who ever lived in Hill County were better known or more highly respected than Captain Bobbitt, and the large crowds attending the funeral services with the numerous and beautiful floral offerings were a slight token of their sorrow at his calling away. He was the oldest member of the local camp of Confederates and one of the oldest citizens of the county."
