Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 711, Indian Creek Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"REUBEN GOOD, the eldest of the eight children of JONAS and ELIZABETH (TROXELL) GOOD, was born in Snyder County, Pennsylvania, August 24, 1824. JONAS GOOD was a blacksmith and farmer, was married in Pennsylvania, and in the spring of 1827 moved with his wife and family to Crawford County, Ohio; in 1830, he removed to Seneca County, (Ohio) and in the fall of 1839 came to this township and entered 280 acres, wrought out a farm, and here died, in 1855, in his fifty-sixth year. He was owner of 721 acres of land; was one of the Township Trustees, under the old constitution; was County Commissioner for one term, and was a member of the German Reformed Church. REUBEN GOOD, until twenty-three years old, remained on the home farm. October 18, 1846, he married CAROLINA MOYER, a native of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. He moved upon sixty-eight acres of land presented to him by his father, on which he has since resided, and which he has increased to 186 acres. He is a Democrat, and has served four years as Township Assessor. He and wife are members of the German Reformed Church, and have had born to them nine children, of whom six are yet living."
