Obituary: Pottsville Republican: 8/23/1929: 

After being in poor health for two months, and bedfast since Thursday, from complications due to advanced years,Charles A. Kershner aged 81, died at 7:30 O'clock, Monday morning at the home of his niece, Mrs. Ben Ellinger, Jr. 325 Minersville St.

Mr. Kershner was adjutant of the Gowen Post No 23, G.A.R. and his death now leaves but nine surviving Civil War Veterans in Pottsville. He is a member of the Methodist Church

Mr. Kershner was a Civil War Veteran who followed the flag for years after the close of that conflict, to protect workmen constructing the Union Pacific and Central Pacific R.R. from Ohmaha to San Franciso, to fight the Sious Indian under, Red Cloud and Spotted Trail In Wyoming, to banish Roman Nose and his 9,000 Sioux across the Canadian border and to fight Apaches in Arizona

He spent a total of 14 years in the service, beginning his career on February 15 1864, with an enlistment in CO. B of the 48th Penna. Volunteers and ending it with a certificate of disability issued by a surgeon following Soldier Kershner's fall into a ditch from horseback in 1878.

Comrade Kershner was with the 48th, then part of the Army of the Potomac, from the Wilderness campaign to Appomattox. He was wounded at North Anna on May 24, 1864 and spent a month at Mt. Pleasant Hospital, Washington, D.C. Three month of civil life in Pottsville, the town of his birth on February 4, 1848 , sufficed for Mr. Kershner again, he decided to become Solder Kershner again ,and accordingly enlisted in the 13th U.S. Infantry at Pottsville on October, 13, 1866.

Until April of 1866, Soldier Kershner remained in Pottsville and later went to Phila., as a clerk in the recruiting service. Then he got a two weeks furlough and at the end of it joined Co. A of the 13th Infantry at Washington D.C. After rearming with Spencer Carbines, a more effective weapon, the regiment went to Nebraska, where picks and shovels were busy on the new U.P. and C.P R.R.

On October 13, 1868 Soldier Kershner again became Mr. Kershner, to immediately reenlist,. this time in Co. H. 30th U.S. Infantry . Sixty days furlough was the reward for re-enlistment and at the end of of that period Mr. Kershner joined his regiment at Fort Laramie, Wyoming, there to battle the aforward Sioux . Fort Fetterman where he received his discharge on Oct. 13, 1871, was the supply post for the regiment

This time he reenlisted in the same company and regiment, again furlough for 60 days, rejoining this company at Fort C. F. Smith in Montana. There the Sioux under Turkey Foot and Big Mouth caused lots of trouble. and later Roman Nose met death and defeat when his Sioux and Comanaches across the border into the land of snows. Then the company went to Ft. Wingate. N.M. for a rest; and while there Soldier Kershner , again became civilian, thought honorable discharge; and again he reenlist this time in CO. A of the 5th C.S. Calvary.

With this outfit Warrior Kershner went to Arizona under Maj. General Crook, the man who took no prisoner. With him he fought Apaches in Arizona under Cheltapan, Deiche and Geronimo,The 6th C.S. Calvary relived the 5th and later went to Ft. Hays, Kansas. for rest and recruits. While resting Comrade Kershner came to Pottsville on a 60 day furlough. He returned to Ft. Hays and in the latter part of 1877 was throw from a horse which was in the act of jumping a ditch. Comrade Kershner kidneys suffered injury. and several months later he was discharged on the surgeons' certificate of disability.

On June of 1863 , Elizabeth C. Herwig became the wife of Comrade Kershner. To them 12 children were born, three of whom are still living as follows : Harry, this city, Mrs. H. K. Johnson, Trenton, NJ. and Mrs. Lewis Davis, Phila. There are also six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren . On February 21, 1923 Mrs. Kershner died.

He is also survived by two sisters, Laura wife of Walter Brown of Detroit Mich. and Emma, the wife of William Smith, Pottsville.
