#7 The Reverend Joseph Austin Jackson

……..From a letter written by the  John Peach .”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 Lockhart , a daughter of the Captain William Frederick Taylor and Louisa (Joyce)Taylor.

William F Taylor and Family by John Peach
Ann Elizabeth (my great-grandmother), George Henry (lived in Chicago), Louisa Lockhart (married Rev. Joseph Austin Jackson); Front row: William Frederick (great-great-grandfather), Louisa (great-great-grandmother), William Brettle (lived in Winnipeg). It is very likely that this photo was taken in Newfoundland after the oldest son, Edgar Fielding died in 1879 and before Louisa Lockhart and Austin moved to Stonewall, Manitoba in 1883.

Photo above taken around the 1880’s in Newfoundland.

Louisa nee  Joyce and Capt William F Taylor :“According to Elizabeth Squires’ book, They Lived by the Sea, Louisa was born at Freshwater (near Carbonear) June 8, 1828. She and William Frederick Taylor were married at Freshwater on July 16 1851. The witnesses were her brothers, Robert and William. (Both of them were sea captains.) They lived on Harbour Rock Hill, Carbonear.

They moved to Manitoba in 1890. It looks as though they lived here on the farm for a short time. I know that they were here when the census taker came around in the spring of 1891. They moved to Winnipeg sometime between then and the birth of my grandfather, Harry, at their house in December 1891. They shared the house with their son, William Brettle Taylor. William Frederick died in that house on November 24 or 25, 1896.” ( From John Peach)

In 1883 ( to 1886), Rev and Mrs. Jackson moved to Stonewall .The Rev was the minister of the Stonewall Circuit of the Methodist Church. ( Stonewall methodist church , Balmoral Methodist Church and perhaps other congregations ). 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 Fielding (b.1883) and Gertrude(b.1885) were born in Stonewall .

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 Lea 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″-actually 1928 . It is noted that while living in Hamilton , Joseph arrived back in Canada from London, England, the 18 August 1901 into Halifax on the “Evangeline “. ( His father had died in England in January 1901).

Time line :Rev at Uniting Church( Methodist) St John’s church Newfoundland and Carbonear , Nfld. Joseph married July 17th 1882 Louise Lockhart Taylor at the home of Capt William F. Taylor and the witness was Ida Taylor ( Louise’s sister?) . They were married by the president of the Methodist conference Rev John S Peach . Rev. Peach was the father in law of Louisa Lockhart Taylor’s sister , Ann Elizabeth , who had married George Edward Peach in 1879.

Capt . William Frederick Taylor (1826-1896) married Louisa Joyce (1828-1901). Both William and Louisa were born in Carbonear .( Louisa in Freshwater ). Both are buried in Winnipeg Manitoba.

The first reference to Rev Jackson was Sept 6th  1878- a baptism in Carbonear , and he served with Rev  John Goodison. He was in Carbonear 1878-1880.And in St. John’s (1881-2)- My understanding is that Joseph was most likely at Gower Street church St. John’s under Rev William W. Percival.(Census 1911  Documents show that he immigrated 1871)

St John’s : tenure. 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.

1846 Carbonear Methodist church

Manitoba : The Rev Jackson was at the Balmoral church in 1883 -86 and at Stonewall.Then 1886-1889 the Zion methodist church in Winnipeg.
