Comments: The McLain Cemetery is behind and to the north of the Manila Chapel on Manila Ridge outside of Robertsburg in Putnam County. You enter through a large gate on the west side of the Manila Chapel property. On the gate is a sign saying 'For Cemetery Use Only'. Continue back through fields and woods for about a half mile to the cemetery. This is on private property so you must get permission at the 1st house on Manila Ridge Road west of Manila Chapel. The cemetery is well kept and maintained.
