Hi Irene
It sounds like ships' records are the way to go to find out more about Austin. There are some crew and masters and mates records on Ancestry (and Find My Past) and I did a quick look. There are lots for Austin Smith but most of them are definitely for a man born 1823 in Nova Scotia. I think you need to consider that he may have used a different name as well (which might lead to the death record). You could also try Google for Ships Lists, or look at Cyndi's ships list. I hope you find him! Chris
