J is for Jackson


Emily Jackson is not related to me or my husband.  She is the mother of my husband's 3rd great great uncle's wife.  

She is included in a biography from 1915 about my husband's Welsh line. The Jackson's come from a family that was very prominent in Berwick, Columbia county, Pennsylvania {where I grew up and most of my family lives.}  the Jackson Mansion has been described as Berwick’s finest gem; it is one of the most famous icons in Berwick and it is used to represent Berwick in eastern Columbia County. 

I have not done much research on the family or the mansion but it has been added to my ever growing to do list.  I am looking forward to learning more about this family, and Berwick and the families that lived there so long ago.

This is a picture of the Jackson Mansion that I took in December of 2013 when it was snowing and we were going to look at the Christmas lights at Christmas Boulevard(another Berwick icon.)
