Gerald Kershner was a graduate of Berwick High School and had a great love for history. He particularly loved the Jackson Mansion as he was the great grandson of Colonel Jackson's coachman Jacob Knecht. His dream was to see the Jackson Mansion restored back to its glory days. Once The Berwick Historical Society got the chance to restore the Mansion, Gerry jumped in with both feet. Gerry made many financial donations and helped oversee much of the restoration using his vast knowledge of the Jackson family. We always enjoyed listening to Gerry tell stories about the Jacksons. He was loved by many and will be missed by all of us.
The Berwick Historical Society wants to continue Gerry's legacy at the Jackson Mansion and therefore has started the Gerald Kershner Memorial Fund. This fund will be used to continue the restoration that Gerry helped start.
Donations can be made by sending your contribution in memory of Gerald Kershner to: The Berwick Historical Society, P.O. Box 301, Berwick, PA 18603.
