|Summons Came Very Suddenly|
Millard Good, Prominent Ebensburger and Member of Council, Dead
Millard Good of the West Ward, a prominent citizen of Ebensburg and a member of council for the past five years, died very suddenly at his home this Friday morning, August 27, 1909, as the result of a stroke of apoplexy, aged fifty-three years.
Mr. Good had been enjoying his accustomed good health and had been attending to the duties of his employment as caretaker of the Ebensburg Inn property of Mr. D. E. Parks during the day. Thursday evening he was about as usual and talked to friends and in the evening returned to his home at the usual hour and talked to his wife and family for sometime before retiring for the night.
About 11:30 o'clock Mrs. Good was awakened from her sleep by her husband's elbow striking her. She spoke to her husband but was unanswered. Mrs. Good noticed that Mr. Good was twitching and she at once summoned Doctors F. C. Jones and Harry J. Bennett. When the doctors arrived they found Mr. Good suffering from a stroke of apoplexy. He never regained consciousness and at four o'clock this morning died without having spoken from the hour when he and Mrs. Good retired.
Mr. Good was a son of the late John Good, who was a well known Cambria Township farmer, and who died some years ago. His mother, Mrs. Ann Good, is still living and resides with her son, Mr. Christ Good of the West ward.
Millard Good has resided in Ebensburg for many years and was one of the town's prominent citizens. When the West ward was divided into the Centre and West wards, Mr. Good was elected to Council from the new West ward, and at the time of his death was serving the second year of his second term as a councilman. Mr. Good for some years past had been the caretaker and gardener for Mr. D. E. Parks, the owner of a handsome summer home and Ebensburg Inn property and the beautiful grounds surrounding the buildings are a testimonial of Mr. Good's skill and good taste.
The deceased is survived by his mother, above mentioned, and his wife, Mrs. Annie Hughes Good, who is a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Morgan Hughes, and the following children: Irvin, Butler, Emma and Eva, all at home and Wellington, who has been a patient for sometime in a Pittsburg sanitarium. He is also survived by the following brothers, Aaron and Henry of Cambria Township and Christ, who is assistant warden at the County Jail.
The funeral arrangements have not as yet been completed but it is expected that the funeral will take place on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock from the Christian church in this place, of which the deceased had been a lifelong member and after services by Rev. H. Mahon, the interment will be made in Lloyd cemetery.
