Charlotte Observer, March 24, 1908:
Special to the Observer.
St. Louis, MO, March 23
The funeral of Cullen Andrews Battle, a native of North Carolina and president of Battle & Co., manufacturing chemists, with offices in St. Louis, Paris and London, who died suddenly in his apartments at Hotel Jefferson yesterday, will be held tomorrow afternoon at the home of his brother and business partner, Jesse M. Battle. The burial will be in Bellefontaine Cemetery.
Mr. Battle was a son of Rev. Dr. Amos Johnson and Margaret Parker Battle. He was born in Hertford County, North Carolina, May 8th, 1848, and was educated at the Wilson Collegiate Institution at Wilson, NC. He began life as a telegraph operator and studied law between the calls of the wire. Later he engaged in the drug business and became a manufacturing chemist. He had been in business in St. Louis since October 21875. Twenty years ago he married Miss Ida Pugh of Marysville, KY.
Mr. Battle was preparing to leave for his farm and country home at North Port, Mich., in expectation that his failing health would be benefited, when he was fatally stricken. The physician pronounced internal hemorrhage, resulting from prolonged illness, the immediate cause of death. Mrs. Battle, wearied of social duties, had been urged by her husband to take a short rest at French Lick and had been gone a week. Messages telling of Mr. Battle's death were sent to friends at French Lick and Mrs. Battle was summoned home, but she was not told of her husband's death until her train neared St. Louis. She retained her composure until she reached the union station. Immediately on her arrival at the hotel apartments she was prostrated.
The Battle's country estate at North Port, Mich., comprised a large farm and a beautiful home on the waterfront, with a yacht at their disposal. Mr. Battle spent his summers there, usually leaving the city late in May. On account of his ill health he was preparing to make the trip early this year, and as late as Wednesday night he insisted on reading to his brother a treatise on the merits of fresh country eggs and egg culture."
