Battiest, McCurtain Co. "It [the town's name] is not, however, a superlative, but rather the name of a respected Choctaw jurist, Byington Battiest, which the settlement adopted in 1928, after spending its first two decades as Ida, for an early resident, Ida Griffin." Published in the Oklahoma Travel Handbook by Kent Ruth, OU Press, Norman, 1977.
