In Reply to: Re: Look Family from Washington Co, Maine by Ray A. Look, Jr. of 189

There is information on the LOOK family in the book "History Of Whiting, Maine" by Glady Hall Forslund.

The article mentions James W. Look, the son of Hillman S. Look of Jonesboro and Jerushia Tibbetts of Columbia Falls that was born in Jonesboro in 1855. and died in Whiting, Maine in 1836.

James W. Look married Alice Anthony who was the daughter of Otis S. Anthony and Achsah W. Caleb. Alice was born in 1868 and died 28 April 1954.

The first Tax notation for James W. Look was for one horse valued at $30.00 in 1902. The Holmes Bay area was called "Looktown".

The article mentions a multi million dollar fish canning business.

There are town records included in the article dated prior to 1926. There is a note that many records are missing.

In the Census of 1975 there were 16 Look families living in Whiting with a total of 53 persons with the surname of Look.
