"...St. John's (the former King's) Churchyard..." -- The Case of Charles Dexter Ward

"I have reared a marble urn to his memory in St. John's churchyard--the place that Poe loved--the hidden grove of giant willows on the hill, where tombs and headstones huddle quietly between the hoary bulk of the church and the houses and bank walls of Benefit Street." -- The Shunned House

"He found it much less formidable to continue along Benefit Street past the iron fence of St. John's hidden churchyard..." -- The Case of Charles Dexter Ward
