On the 4th day of April 1844, Benjamin Ogle II died "at his residence after a few days' illness."

the Obituary in the National Intelligencer expressed the highest admiration;

To say he was beloved by all who knew him is not the language of ordinary eulogy.  Having had the advantages of education in England, with an unusually retentative memory, his mind was stored with information and anecdote that he was ever ready to impart, which made him the delight of society, both of the old and of the young.  With a taste for field sports, he prosecuted them with ardor almost to the last year of his life.  For nearly fifty years he resided upon his patrimonial estate, in the constant exercise of kind and good actions.  His life was an example of virtue worthy of imitation.  He died without reproach.  He was an affectionate  and devoted husband and parent, a kind and indulgent master, a sincere friend, a true patriot, and an unassuming Christian.
