Rev Johnston's burial location at the Johnston Family Cemetery at Hayes is described in the book: "A Doctor's Experiences In Three Continents" by Edward Warren, M.D., C.M., LL.D. (Cushing & Bailey, Publishers, Baltimore MD 1885) [on the Internet at website]

In Chapter XIII at pages 209 and 210, Dr. Warren's book includes the following text:

The rector of old St. Paul's, at Edenton, the Rev. Samuel Iredell Johnstone, was the most esteemed of his relations and the most cherished of his friends. ...In the pulpit he was noted for the force of his logic and the fervor of his eloquence, while out of it he was distinguished for his zeal and consistency as a Christian, and for his loyalty, honesty and guilelessness as a man. ...

His death was regarded as a public calamity by those among whom he had lived and ministered, and ... not an eye refused its tears nor a heart its sympathy as his remains were borne to the old family graveyard at Hayes to be deposited amid the ashes of his honored ancestors....

He married Margaret, the second daughter of George Burgwyn, of "The Hermitage," in New Hanover County, and the niece of Judge Nash, the Chief-Justice of North Carolina, by whom he had a large family of children.
