Jim was the seventh child of Thomas Jefferson Good and Lydia Matilda Blurton. At the age of 5 he moved with his family to St. Joseph, Missouri where he began school. By 1910 the family had moved on to East St. Louis, Illinois. Jim's education ended after the fourth grade when he went to work at odd jobs. He met his future wife, Pearl Evelyn Moser in East St. Louis. They were married in Edwardsville, Madison County, Illinois on September 14, 1916.
Jim went to work for the Missouri Pacific Railroad in Dupo, Illinois November 1922 in the car department and remained on the job until February 1933. He came to California in late 1933 or early 1934 and settled first in Los Angeles. He went to work for the Pacific Fruit Express Co. in Los Angeles September 1934 and worked there until February 1936. He then came to Colton and was hired at the local Pacific fruit express shops. He remained on this job the rest of his life dying on the job just ten minutes before the end of the work day. We were told they had just pushed a completed car down the tracks and were walking back. Jim had just told a joke and all were laughing when he collapsed. The coroner says the death was instantaneous and he was gone before he hit the ground.
Jim loved to work in his yard and raise a few vegetables. For awhile during the war he raised chickens, but they became more like pets to him and he said he didn't like the taste of chicken meat. When the last of his chickens were gone, he found that he enjoyed chicken that came from the store.
He and Pearl had one daughter and three grandchildren.
