    Obituary
    • GEORGE S. GOOD,
      CONTRACTOR, DIES

      Man Who Built El Paso Northeastern Railroad and Was Well Known Here, Dies in Pennsylvania.

      George S. Good, builder of the El Paso & Northeastern railway, now the eastern division of the E. P. & S. W. from El Paso to Tucumcari, N. M., is dead at Lock Haven, Pa., according to word received here Tuesday by Charles Beisswenger. Good was 67 years old. Many El Pasoans knew him, as he resided here during the time that the Northeastern was being built. The road at that time was generally known as the "White Oaks" railway. Good came to El Paso in 1900 and was in this section until 1902. He owned property in Mexico.

      He was born near Milton, Pa., in 1844 and began his education in Dickinson seminary. When the civil war broke out he was given a lieutenancy in Co. "I," Eighty-fourth Pennsylvania infantry. He was wounded at Chancellorville and twice confined in Libby prison. He was among the famous group of 109 men who tunneled their way to freedom from this prison. The building of the White Oaks railway was only one of many railroad construction operations carried on by Mr. Good during his lifetime. A widow and six children survive him.
