#7 The Reverend Joseph Austin Jackson
……..From a letter written by the Rev John Peach .(Balmoral church? )”An early minister and his family” This short item was published in the Stonewall News. ‘As Rev jackson was returning from a wedding at Balmoral on Thursday his cutter upset near Mr. Cleland’s. As he went back for his robe and whip his horse started off , and up to the time of going to press has not been found. The rev gentleman was obligued to “Hoof it ” home , a distance of about seven miles. ( This took place in winter ) ….Joseph Austin Jackson was born in England in 1854.He was ordained there , and crossed the ocean to serve churches in Newfoundland,- in St. John’s .. and in the town of Carbonear. While in Carbonear , he married Louisa , a daughter of the Captain William Frederick Taylor and Louisa Taylor.
In 1883 Rev and Mrs. Jackson moved to Stonewall . The Stonewall news described Austin Jackson as “popular”. Thirty five years later Rev. R.E.McCullagh in his historic sketch of the Stonewall Circuit, wrote of Mr. Jackson, “He was a man attractive in personality and effective in his labours”.While the Jacksons were in Stonewall , their first two children , Elizabeth and Gertrude were born.
In those days, Methodist ministers almost always served a circuit for a maximum of three years . In 1886 the original plan was that Mr. Jackson would move to the thriving Meadow Lee Circuit . However, the plan changed and he became minister of the large Zion Methodist church in Winnipeg for the next three years. He was invited to return to Stonewall to preach on several occasions. Also the Stonewall News mentions Mrs. Jackson’s visits to friends in the community.
In 1888 Mrs Jackson’s sister , her husband and four children moved to a farm in Manitoba. Some of the leaders of the methodist church in the area were among those who assisted them in becoming established. Retired Capt. Taylor and Mrs. Taylor soon followed and lived the rest of their lives in Winnipeg.
In 1889 the Jacksons moved to Ontario to serve in churches in various communities including Hamilton. Mr. Jackson died in that city in 1929″( 1928?) .
Time line :
Rev at Uniting Church St John’s Newfoundland and Carbonear , Nfld. Joseph married July 17th 1882 Louise Lockhart Taylor at the home of Capt William Taylor and the witness was Ida Taylor ( Louise’s sister?) . They were married by the president of the Methodist conference Rev John S Peach .
The first reference to Rev Jackson was Sept 6th 1878- a baptism in Carbonear , and he served with John Godison. He was in Carbonear 1878-1880.St. John’s (1881-2)My understanding is that Joseph was at Gower Street church St. John’s under Rev william W. Percival.

https://bethanyunitedchurch.com/church-history/Carbonear: Bethany United Church.There were two methodist churches in Carbonear , one on the north side and one on the south side at this time . Bethany and Perry’s cove. I am not certain to which one Joseph was placed. The bethany church rebuilt in the 1850’s burnt down in 1892. Below is the original Bethany church.
