Many distinguished North Carolinians, as well as citizens outside the state, are buried in the Old English cemetery at Salisbury. There rest the body of Governor John W. Ellis, as well as four English soldiers who in 1781 during Cornwallis' occupation of Salisbury, died of smallpox. Also buried there is John Joseph Burner, one of the earliest editors of the CAROLINA WATCHMAN, the state's oldest newspaper.
