Private Thomas F Good (born Guth), Company G, 128th Pennsylvania Infantry was wounded by a gunshot at Antietam in September 1862 and was captured at Chancellorsville, VA in May 1863.

After the war he held a variety of jobs in Lehigh County, PA, including a stint as clerk at the Black Bear Hotel in Allentown, pictured here, from a photograph at the Lehigh County Historical Society. The Black Bear also housed stables for the horse-drawn streetcar system in Allentown and for the Allentown-Saegerstown stage, both also among Thomas’ employers.
