|GOOD. -- In Morrellville, on Wednesday, May 22, 1889, David Good, aged 87 years and 15 days.|
[same newspaper, same page]:
The subject of this notice, whose sickness has frequently been referred to in these columns, passed from life at his home in Morrellville at 1 A. M. on Wednesday. He had been ill for a long time, and for a period was entirely blind, but had recovered his sight to some extent before his death. He was one of the largest and most powerful men that ever worked for the Cambria Iron Company. He was a rail straightener by occupation, and had many friends, who were very attentive to him.
Mr. Good was a son of Jacob Good, whose home is in Cambria County, near Cherrytree, and who arrived Tuesday night in time to be with his son in his last moments. He came here whn about sixteen years old, and had been straightening rails ever since the strike.
The deceased leaves a widow and seven children, the oldest being fifteen years of age and the youngest a little over two. Mrs. Good's maiden name was McFeaters, she being a daughter of Mark McFeaters, of East Wheatfield Township, Indiana County, and a sister of the late Prof. J. C. McFeaters, of Johnstown.
Mr. Good was up town only a little more than a week ago, and was given a carriage ride by Colonel Linton, which he enjoyed very much. About a week before his death he was received into the Presbyterian Church by baptism, and his end was very peaceful.
The rail-straighteners were the pall-bearers.
