The New Orleans Times Democrat , Friday, April 16th, 1901
Funeral of Capt. Charles Parmintier Bobb - Special to the Times-Democrat; Vicksburg, Miss., April 15th, 1901; - The remains of Capt. Charles Parmintier Bobb were buried in the family lot in the City Cemetery this afternoon. Capt Bobb was a consistent and earnest member of the Presbyterian Church, a true, benevolent Christian gentleman. His age was eighty-eight years one month and five days. A large number of relatives in Louisiana, Mississippi and Kentucky survive him. Capt Bobb was born in Philadelphia, Pa., on March 5, 1813. His parents were Peter and Elizabeth Bobb. During childhood, his residence was changed to Hopkinsville, Ky. At the age of sixteen he went to Vicksburg, Miss., where he engaged in the manufacture of brick, continuing in that business for a number of years with his elder brother William Bobb. More than sixty years ago they changed their field of operations going to New Orleans and establishing their business on an extensive scale on the west side of the river, near where the Harvey's Canal is located, furnishing material for many of the largest and finest structures built in the city in those days, one among which is St. Patrick's Catholic Church on Camp street. They established the service and built and operated the steam ferry between Harvey and the city at Louisiana Avenue for many years. Notwithstanding the many changes caused by the War Between the States, they continued in business until the death of William Bobb, which occurred in 1873. After closing up the business, Capt. Bobb retired to private life and divided his time with relatives between New Orleans, Vicksburg and Louisville, spending his winters in the Crescent City. He was largely interested in various enterprises in Louisville and other parts of Kentucky. Early last fall he was stricken with a sever spell of sickness, from which he suffered very much. After recovering, somewhat he went to New Orleans. On Jan. 24 last he met with a sever accident, breaking one of his ribs, which caused a return of his former illness, and a few days before his death he was attacked with grip, which terminated fatally at 12:30 Wednesday night, April 10. 1901.
