An earlier article by Edna Ingham.

The Look Cemetery is located on County Road No. 86 a short distance east of the hamlet of Pleasantville. This road is the old Chautauqua road from Mayville to Ellicottville and the first settlers in the town of Stockton and many of the first in the town of Chautauqua were located on or near this highway and many of them sleep in this little and long neglected burial ground.

LOOK, Elijah "A Soldier of the Revolution and of the Cross of Christ" died 27 Aug. 1852, age 95-5-? Has DAR marker.
LOOK, Mary, his wife, died 12 March 1844 age 78.
LOOK, Augusta, wife of Deacon Elijah Look, died 5 July 1852, age 53. She is the same age as his son William. Is she his wife or the wife of a possible son Elijah Jr.? (*YES)
