Born in Illinois on 22 Aug 1826, the son of Horace and Emma, Oliver C. Look was a resident of Collinsville and prior to the war, made his living as a sadler. On 15 May 1856, he married Katherine J. Budle in St. Clair Co., Illinois but the couple continued to reside in Collinsville where they raised their children: Arthur, Horace, Emma and Maria.

He enlisted as a Private on 19 July 1862 with Company F, 117th Infantry Regiment Illinois and was promoted to a corporal at the time he was mustered out on 05 August 1865 at Camp Butler, Springfield, Illinois.

After the war, he returned to his profession of sadler and harness maker. In relation to other Collinsville veterans, in 1880, he was listed as living next door to veteran Nineveh McKeen (who received the Congressional Medal of Honor) on Church Street in Collinsville.
