By 1900, George and Minnie Macleod were renting a house at 1484 Linwood Ave., Cleveland, Ohio [1900 census] and Minnie’s brother, Charles Garrard, a Corporal in the U.S. Army was living with them.  By 1910, George and Minnie had purchased a home at 1556 Addison Road N.E., Cleveland, Ohio. George’s sister, Mary, had emigrated from Orillia, Canada in 1897 and was living with them along with George Blair, a nephew of George Macleod, who was attending medical school at Western Reserve. [1910 Census]  Growing up, Garrard spent time at the Garrard’s Twinsburg farm as well as summer camping trips his father would take him on in the Algonquin Provincial Park with relatives from Orillia.
