Last Saturday Dr. F.O. Norris received a telegram to start immediately for Waco to see Col. O.L. Battle, who was very ill, and before starting Sunday morning a dispatch was received announcing his death. Col. Battle was for many years a resident of this county [Wharton], and is well and favorably known here, as a man of superior abilities, and a great moral worth. What the nature of malady was, we have not yet learned. Colorado Citizen, March 11, 1886, page 3.

On September 27, 1860, Oliver Battle was a passenger in the Gulf of Mexico on board the steamboat Bayou City. She was bound from Galveston to Houston, and when about to make a landing at Lynchburg, her boilers burst with terrific explosion and fearful result. Among those who died was Oliver's brother-in-law, Isaiah Irvin, Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives. Irvin was seen rushing aft, and it is believed he jumped overboard and was drowned.
