    Notes 
    • Obituary from Alvin Sun, Oct. 1918
      Judge Jesse Hobbs is no more.  The familiar figure of this loved citizen that has been a part of Alvin's daily life formore than 34 years, and a grand old veteran of the Civil Ware, has passed on to join the rapidly growing ranks of the wearers of the grey.
      Several months ago Judge Hobbs resigned his position as Justice of the Peace on account of failing health, and accompanied by his daughter, Mrs. Alice Pate, went to Boerne, Texas, hoping that the change would benefit him.  For a time he apparently improved.  About a week ago last Thursday, he contacted a light cold.  The next day he left Boerne for San Antonio to visit relatives and upon arriving there complained of feeling sick.  A physician was summoned and members of the family were advised that his condition was serious and it was thought best to bring him back to Alvin and the return was made last Sunday night.
      At no time did the Judge give up hope and while he seemed conscious that the end was drawing near he conversed freely with his children and visitors in his usual cheerful manner.
      Friday afternoon at about 2 o'clock his long pilgrimage of 78 years drew to a close and the spirit of a man among men left its tenement of clay to dwell forever in the raiment of the Master's own kingdom.
      Funeral services were held at First Methodist Church Saturday afternoon, Rev. C. M. Meyers officiating and a long procession of surviving friends followed the funeral cortege to the Confederate Cemetery, to pay their last earthly respects to the deceased.
      Judge Hobbs was a man that was loved by everyone.  He never seemed more happy than when spending his time in doing little acts of kindness and charity among the poor and unfortunate.  For a number of years he has suffered much from ill health, but never complained and always had a cheerful word for everyone.  He is lost to this world forever, but the exemplary life he leaves behind him will move on and on, in the lives of his former associates, creating an influence that will make the world better, purer and clearer.
      The above picture represents Judge Jesse Hobbs when a youth just after the war and as commander of John A. Wharton Comp No. 286 United Confederate Veterans at 70 years of age.  Jesse Hobbs was born in Alabama, November 26, 1842.  Moved to Texas with his widowed mother in 1852, settled in Matagorda county.  He entered the Confederate army in 1868 and saw service in Louisiana and Texas during the war in Company G, Thirty-third Texas Cavalry regiment.  He was married in 1868.  The cattle industry was principal occupation until 1884, at which time he settled in Alvin.  He has been justice of the peace for the last 24 years and commander of John A. Wharton camp, United confederate veterans, for the last ten years.  He has the reputation of settling more suits out of court than in court by advising litigants to get together and talk over their differences and agree to be friends.  He has been a reader of The Sun ever since it began publications.
      He leaves to mourn his loss seven children: Mrs. Lillie Greenlee, Oklahoma City; Mrs. Irene Floyd, Port Arthur; Mrs. Frank Le Clere, Galveston; H. Hobbs, Port Arthur; Horace Hobbs, Damon Mound, and Mrs. Alice Hobbs and Irvin Hobbs of this city.
