Linn County Cemeteries


1. The MILLER cemetery was established in 1850, in which year Mr. William McClain was buried there, in the far northwest corner.  The cemetery is positioned at the corner of Woods Road and Millersburg Drive in a rural area about 5 miles north of Millersburg, Oregon.  It is enclosed with a chain link fence, but is not being maintained. Rows are laid out running north and south.  It is still being used for burials; some as recent as 1997.  The oldest portion of the cemetery, at the northwest corner, is in very poor condition and has suffered some vandalism.  About a dozen headstones are either damaged so badly that it is impossible to be certain of the information they bear, or are completely gone.  These are reflected below with appropriate question marks. 


2. Directions to travel to the cemetery: (Located 1 1/2 miles from Interstate-5)  Exit 238 from I-5.  The ramp empties onto Old Hwy 99E. Travel west on 99E 1/2 mile to north on Morningstar Drive.  Go 500 feet to west on Millersburg Drive.  Go 1 mile to Woods Road which runs south only, and is not marked with identifying road sign.  The cemetery is in plain view on the corner, and marked with a large sign at the gate. 


3. Key to notations:
