So people can see what was found previously on Garret, see this thread:  http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,594356.msg4446871.html#msg4446871 

Garret's WWI draft registration card indicates that Ambrose was living at Grayling.

Hello, my name is Cody Elmy, direct descendant of Ambrose McClain. My mother is Michelle McClain, daughter of Robert McClain whom is son on FJ "Mickey" McClain whom was the son of Ambrose. I'm trying to track down when exactly the McClain family settled in Grayling Michigan.

You may want to try going through the Crawford Avalanche newspaper. It is the Grayling, Michigan paper. It's available online for free from 1879-2012. I believe it was a weekly paper.

I'm familiar with the avalanche as I grew up in Crawford county. I've searched hard for the last few days using several different keywords in my search. All I've managed to dig up is what I'm sure you yourself have discovered.
