Oliver's detachment was ambushed March 20, 1864 while sleeping around their campfire at the Sinks of Gandy, eastern Randolph County. Oliver was killed instantly by the Home Guards opening volley, being struck by nine balls. His body was recovered by family. Private Oliver R. Triplett was buried in Maplewood Cemetery, Elkins, WV.
