Statement from Cecilia Yorston Johnston: "I am sorry to say that Hugh died the 29th of September, 1854, at half past 9 p.m., 300 miles from the valley. He died without any pain, of seven days slow but gradual and fated weakness, no other visible disease. During his sickness he did not murmur, only said he would like to get to the Valley alive, that he might receive more blessings.". (Taken from a letter from Cecilia to her son, Hugh Johnston living in Cardiff, Wales in 1856)He was buried on the plains near the Sweetwater River in Wyoming, on the same day that he had died.
His name is on a Memorial Wall in Nauvoo, Illinois entitled "Upon these walls are the names of those who died before their journey's end."
