The Standard (Clarksville, Red River Co., TX), Fri., 21 Oct 1881, p. 3, c. 4

DIED - At his residence in Clarksville, on Tuesday morning, the 18th, of inflammation of the stomach, Dr. Enos S. Look, aged 78 years.

Dr. Look was a native of New York, but when a boy moved to St. Louis, and afterward to Louisville, Ky., where we think, he studied medicine. The Doctor acted as Assistant Surgeon during the Seminole war, and when we first knew him in 1842 was employed as Post Surgeon at Fort Towson. In the spring of 1843 he moved to Clarksville, went into practice, and established a drug store in H. R. Latimner's law office, on the lot south of our residence, now owned by John A. Bagby, in rear of Mrs. Alice Clark's resident. The Doctor had been so long known to the people of Red River, that although he spent a few years at Jefferson, moving back in 1878, he seemed a fixture of the county. He had much surgical and medical skill, a long experience in practice, and always commanded a large practice. He was always genial and agreeable, scarcely ever in ill humor, took a philosophic view of life, and had considerable public spirit, and disposition to improve the locality by doing his own full share.

He was the builder of the large house occupied by Dr. Lyons, on the northeast corner of the square, burned last year. This, when put up, was the most expensive house in town, and had a wing, since removed, in which the Doctor established a drug store.

The community has lost a good citizen by the death of Dr. Look, and his family, a wife and two boys are sadly bereaved.

The Doctor was twice married, his first wife being a daughter of the late Phillip Daly (sic - Duty).

A large assemblage, including our oldest citizens followed the Doctor to the grave, and evinced their respect for his social worth and for his afflicted family.

The funeral services were rendered by the Rev. Mr. Hendricks, of the Cumberland Presbyterian church.

The pall bearers were Dr's Morgan, Rainey, Johns and Dinwiddie.
