THE WESTERN STAR, 14 February 1913
Obituary of ENOCH GEORGE CASTLE
ENOCH G. CASTLE DIES at HIS HOME NEAR LOOKOUT.

Enoch G. Castle died on Thursday evening of last week, February 6, 1913, at his home three miles north of Lookout, Okla., after an illness of about 3 months, during which time he was a sufferer from acute bronchitis. The end came peacefully and apparently without severe suffering. Mr. Castle was conscious up to within 10 minutes of the time of his death.

Enoch George Castle was born in Picaway county, Ohio, on May 28, 1841. During the Civil War he was a member of Company A, Twenty first Ohio Infantry, and served for 3 years and 8 months, during which time he took part in some of the important battles and marches of the war, including Sherman's famous "March in the Sea." His record as a Union soldier was untarnished by any lack of bravery or endurance. Soon after the war Mr. Castle moved to southern Missouri, where he lived for 27 years. About 11 years ago he moved with his family to the vicinity of Lookout, 26 miles south of this city, where he continued to live.

Deceased was one of the best citizens of the entire community and was regarded by all as an upright Christian gentleman. He has been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church for about 40 years and died, as he had lived, with an abiding faith in Christ as his Redeemer. Funeral services were conducted on Saturday by Elder Chesnut of the Christian church, and
whose home is near Lookout. Interment was made in the Lookout cemetery. The wife, two sons and three daughters survive. Charles C. Castle of this city is one of the sons. To all of them, the sincere sympathy of
the entire community is extended in this, their hour of bereavement.
