Charles Clement Johnston (April 30, 1795 – June 17, 1832) was a U.S. Representative from Virginia.[1]

Born in Prince Edward County, Virginia, and educated at home, he moved with his parents to his grandfather's house, Panicello, near Abingdon, Virginia, in 1811. He studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1818 and commenced practice in Abingdon, Virginia. He was elected as a Jacksonian Democrat to the 22nd Congress and served from March 4, 1831, until his death by drowning near one of the docks in Alexandria, Virginia at the age of 37, on June 17, 1832, and is interred in the Congressional Cemetery in Washington, D.C.

His brother Joseph E. Johnston, was a Confederate general and also, much later, a U.S. Representative. The Johnston political family of Virginia also includes a nephew, John W. Johnston, who was a United States Senator, and grandnephew Henry Bowen, also a U.S. Representative for Virginia.
