Charles C. Goff, a former resident of Pittsburgh, died last Wednesday at New Orleans, in his 68th year. He was a son of the late Kinney H. and Sophia Hugo Goff. He moved to New Orleans about 50 years ago. Shorty after his arrival he became connected with one of the big river boats and followed the river until the war came. He was chief engineer on many of the famous old floating palaces in those days, but when the blockade was established on the Southern coast he withdrew from the trade and became one of the engineers on a blockade runner and served the Confederate cause. He leaves a widow, the former Mary Francesca Zeller, and three children. Mrs. William (Louvenia) Hamilton, Mrs. Herbert (Isabelle)Virgin and Mrs. Lucius (Elizabeth) Daniel.
