Jonathan Good, son of John Good, was sixteen years old when he came in 1818 with his family from Pennsylvania and settled on a farm north of the early settlement of Waterloo. In the early days he was a teacher, having served for a time in the 1820 log school on Church (now Central St. in Waterloo) He built a new home on Albert St on land that had been part of his father's large acreage. The home, much renovated and added to is called Lucinda House and is owned by Wilfred Laurier University. Later on in his life, the family moved up to Formosa where his father, John Good, was known in the early settlement as a "healer" and probably Joseph learned from his father. No record of any other medical training has come to light.
