Daniel Good

Daniel B. Good, established the Seibert-Good Company in Chicago, later consolidated with the Seymour H. Knox stores of Buffalo, and finally amalgamated with the F. W. Woolworth Company.

Excerpts - Obituary in The Buffalo News, July 13, 1922

Born in Michigan about 56 years ago, Mr. Good later became a partner in the firm of Seibert & Good in Chicago, developing a chain of stores in that city.

Seventeen years ago, in 1905, this chain of stores was consolidated with the stores developed in the east by the late Mr. [Seymour H.] Knox. Mr. Seibert died before the consolidation.

Excerpts - Obituary in Buffalo Express, July 14, 1922

Mr. Good began a five and ten-cent store business in Fort Wayne, Ind., and it became so successful that he moved to Chicago to take charge of the firm of Seibert & Good.

In 1905 Mr. Good moved to Buffalo and consolidated his firm with that of Seymour H. Knox. The two men worked together for seven years, during which time Mr. Good became prominent in Buffalo business circles.

In 1912 the firm of S. H. Knox was bought by the F. W. Woolworth company and Mr. Good retired, although he was a director in the new concern.

The funeral service will be held on Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock at the Crescent Beach summer home.

Excerpts - Obituary in Buffalo Commercial, July 13, 1922

He started in the five and ten cent business in Chicago with John Felbert. Upon the death of Felbert, Good joined [Seymour H.] Knox. When the company was made a trust company he became a director. Shortly after he retired.

Good was life long member of the North Presbyterian Church.

Excerpts - Obituary

... [Daniel Good] had a chain of [five and ten cent] stores about 15 in number. These were mainly located through the Middle West. Seymour H. Knox was engaged in a similar business in the East and about 20 years ago the two merged their interests, organizing the S. H. Knox Co.

Mr. Good came to Buffalo to reside at that time. He was vice-president of the company. Headquarters of the company were in Buffalo.

Merger Great Success

The Knox-Good merger proved a great success and was the foundation of two great fortunes. Mr. Knox was also a millionaire at the time of his death about half a dozen years ago.

About ten years ago the S. H. Knox Co. was bought by the F. W. Woolworth Co. One of the Woolworth stores in Main Street, Buffalo, formerly was a Knox store.

Surviving Mr. Good are his widow, Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Good; two daughters, Mrs. Ellsworth Augustus of Cleveland, and Margaret Good; a sister, Mrs. John M. Hull of Buffalo, and two brothers who reside in the West.

Mr. Good's body will be brought to his town residence, No. 864 Delaware Avenue.

Excerpts - Obituary in the Buffalo Times, July 16, 1922
