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.
