4. Obituary: Lebanon Daily News: obituary of John M. Good on 11 Jul 1878 in Lebanon, Lebanon, PA. 7 John M. Good, Squire of the Fifth and Sixth wards, yesterday afternoon, shortly after 1 o'clock, breathed his last. Mrs. Good had been afflicted with that painful and incurable disease known as Bright's disease of the kidneys, but throughout bore his affliction with true Christian fortitude, and all that a kind wife and sympathizing friends could do for him was done; but of he avant, the Reaper Death had marked him for his own and yesterday afternoon he peacefully passed away "to the shining sore over Jordan." He was willing to die and on Monday for the last time communion was given him by his paster, Rev. trabert, after which he gradually commenced to sink. Squire Good was a man of sterling worth, possessed qualities of no mean order, and in society was of a convivial disposition and wherever he went made hosts of friends. During his early manhood he conducted a bookstore in Lebanon, but this not suiting his tastes he was seized with the California fever which prevailed in 1858-9 and started for the Pacific slope, and from St. Louis to California, he, in company with two companions, walked the distance. For awhile he worked at gold mining, but not being strongly constituted he soon relinguished it and took the chief clerkship in the San Francisco custom house, but still feeling restless he resigned this position, returned home and soon thereafter netted as book-keeper for Messrs. Reinhoehl & Meily and subsequently was elected Squire of the Fifth and Sixth wards which position he filled with marked ability. The Squire was married to the sister of Mr. Adolphus Reinoehl and died in the 44th year of his age. He was also a worthy member of the Masonic fraternity. Regui scut in paes.
