From The History of Clark County, Ohio W. H. Beers & Co. Chicago 1881 Biographical Sketches, pg 976:

W. P. JACKSON, minister; P. O. Catawba; was born Jan. 16, 1835, in Warren Co., Ohio, was raised and educated upon his father's farm, midway between Pleasant Plain and Level. He attended the Lebanon, Normal, Mainville Academy, and the Ohio Wesleyan University. When the late war began he enlisted in the 12th O. V. I., and went forward to fight for his country. He was engaged in a great many severe battles; served three years and three months. After the close of the war, he entered the Cincinnati Conference, in September, 1865; was ordained as local Deacon; was transferred to the Holston Conference in 1866, and labored in the traveling connection in Tennessee. In 1870, he was retransferred to the Cincinnati Conference; was ordained minister in October, 1869. He is at present Pastor of the M. E. Church at Catawba. He was married, Nov. 27, 1867, to Miss Maggie E., daughter of James Richards, of Brown Co. Ohio. They had five children, four living.

From Lois E. Jackson, descendant: William Pitt Jackson served in the 12th Ohio Volunteer Infantry and took part in many Civil War battles including the attack on the Burnside Bridge at Antietam, MD. He also preached the gospel as a Methodist and after the war (1866-69) went as a missionary to N. Carolina & Tennessee. Upon his return to Ohio, he was assigned as a circuit rider to several parishes in Brown County, Ohio, where he met his wife Margaret (Maggie) Richards, daughter of James & Violetta Thompson Richards. James Richards (b. 5 Dec. 1807; d. 13 Sept 1880) m. 13 May 1835 Violetta Richards (b. abt. 1818; d. 8 Aug 1888) of Brown County, Ohio. While he was in the Army, he contracted a fever and was treated in a camp hospital where he was exposed to very bright sunlight. This led to his blindness in later years. He died in Blanchester, OH and is buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery there.
