No wife or widow was mentioned in John's death notice in The Islander- May 16, 1851:
On the 19th ult., after a protracted pulmonary disease, which he bore with Christian fortitude, John the eldest son of Mr. William Johnstone of Long River, New London, aged 35 years, leaving kind parents and a large circle of relations and friends to lament his loss. But realizing particularly in his death, the virtue of the blood of Christ, it is satisfying to know that their loss is his gain.

In Arthur Johnstone's story of growing up in Long River, he said that David Johnstone's son Captain William took John to Palaka, Florida, in the hope that his would improve his health.

Administration papers of John Johnstone's estate say he was a miller in Bedeque and that he was unmarried.
