John B. Bobbitt died on June 25 1860 in Raleigh, North Carolina. His wife survived him for about eleven years. Both are supposed to have been buried in Oak Hill cemetery in Raleigh, but I was unable to locate their graves.
On July 5, 1860 the Raleigh Register reported the death of John B. Bobbitt and a rather large obituary was written. The copy that was in the North Carolina State Archives was removed by a researcher and was never returned.
John B. Bobbitt was the only Franklin County graduate of the University of North Carolina before 1810. He was one of the few early educators in the State of North Carolina. Both John and his wife owned several slaves and when his wife was listed in the census of 1860 she was counted as having nine slaves. John B. Bobbitt is believed to have been one of the founders of Lewisburg College.
