**PLEASE READ** This is not a complete listing of all people buried in Johnston County!  As of June 10, 2009 I am no longer going to continue this project, but I can still lookup deaths and email pictures that I have already taken. I suggest you email me if  you can't find who you are looking for.  I can lookup deaths through about the 1980s.  So please don't hesitate to email me any lookups you might have, I am glad to help.
