  • Notes 
    • Christian Good, "The ancestors of this family came from Switzerland in 1737. Three brothers whose names were Abraham, Christian, and Peter left their native home (Switzerland) and came to Pennsylvania in spring of 1737. After spending a few weeks in Philadelphia they were informed that many of their co-religionists have formed settlements in Lancaster County and were all doing remarkably well. They, being desirous to settle among their own countrymen, moved to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, near Muddy Creek. Here Abraham died in 1743, leaving no heirs. Christian was married to Anna Schmidt. Peter Good moved to Virginia about the year 1759. No information has been received of his descendants. We shall follow the descendants of the old progenitor, Christian Good, who was born in Switzerland about the year 1690 and settled in Lancaster County in 1737. Their family consisted of two sons and three daughters, the daughters' names were not given but the sons' names were Peter and John."
