  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Endor 
  fountain  of  Dor;  i.e.,  "of  the  age",  a  place  in  the  territory  of 
  Issachar  (Josh.  17:11)  near  the  scene  of  the  great  victory  which 
  was  gained  by  Deborah  and  Barak  over  Sisera  and  Jabin  (comp.  Ps 
  83:9,  10).  To  Endor,  Saul  resorted  to  consult  one  reputed  to  be 
  a  witch  on  the  eve  of  his  last  engagement  with  the  Philistines 
  (1  Sam.  28:7).  It  is  identified  with  the  modern  village  of 
  Endur,  "a  dirty  hamlet  of  some  twenty  houses,  or  rather  huts, 
  most  of  them  falling  to  ruin,"  on  the  northern  slope  of  Little 
  Hermon,  about  7  miles  from  Jezreel.
