      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, September 18, 1907 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Marian E. Look Killed - A Shocking Railroad Accident - A more startling announcement has not been heard on our streets in a long time than was given out a little past noon, Friday, which was the news that Marian E. Look, a well-known farmer and speculator, living a mile east of this village, had been struck by the south bound passenger train, which was an hour late, for Syracuse, and himself and horse had been killed. The story of the accident is comprehended in the following facts: Mr. Look was driving a horse and his son, Louis Look, and Dexter Lilley were driving cattle. Just before reaching what is known as May's crossing Mr. Look was talking with a farmer on the east side of the track and, as the train was coming at a very high rate of speed, and the engine quite still, and probably did not blow for that crossing, but that is not certain, Mr. Look failed to observe the train. The horse was shocked so it lived but a few minutes, but Mr. Look was instantly killed. The train was going so fast that it did not stop until it reached the bridge. It then backed up and took the remains to the Pulaski station and from there they were taken to Enos & Morton's undertaking rooms. Mr. Look was born in the town of Amboy, March 4, 1853. He came to this town thirty years ago. He married Julia Stewart, who, with five children, Louis Look, Mrs. Angie Burns, Mrs. Cora Ford and Misses Grace and Alice Look, surviving him, all but Mrs. Ford residing at home.

Frederick Maunder officiated and Spring Brook Lodge exemplified the Odd Fellows burial service. The funeral was one of the largest ever held in Richland. The gathering included friends from all about this locality, who came to pay their respects to the memory of Mr. Look. Rev.
