          After being confined to his bed for several months suffering from a stroke of paralysis, Warren Good colored, a veteran, is dead.  The age of Mr. Good is not known, but it is given out as sixty-five years.  He was born in the days of slavery in the state of Kentucky and was under the care of his master at the time he was allowed to enter the service of the union.  It has been told that at that time his master made false statements regarding his age in the hope of retaining him among his slaves and as a consequence Mr. Good never knew the exact truth regarding his age.  It is certain however, that he was sixty-five, and it is probable that he was a few years older than that.  In the war he served in Company E. 119th Kentucky regiment, and his record as a soldier was one of the most highly prized experiences of his life.  He had been a resident of the city for many years and was respected by all who knew him, whether white or colored, as he was a citizen, reflecting honor on any community with which his lot was cast.  He was a member of the Second Baptist church of this city and was a devout follower of the Master.  He was a member of Pride of Jonathan lodge, I.O.O.F., No. 1918, and of Dumont Post No. 18, G.A.R., and the members of these organizations will take an active part in the funeral services and burial ceremonies.  The members of Dumont Post have arranged to meet at their hall at 1 o’clock Wednesday afternoon to attend the funeral.  The funeral services will be held at the Second Baptist church at 2 o’clock Wednesday afternoon and the interment will be made in the City cemetery in charge of Ralph J. Edwards.  Mr. Good is survived by his wife and two sons and five daughters.  He also leaves two half brothers, Washington  and  Archie Good; both of this city.  For the past few years he had been operating a wood and coal yard located on property he owned on west Locust street.  He also received a pension from the government.
