THE FAMILY ALBUM: John William Garrett Clary – registration card

Tonight, while researching for a project, I happened onto my maternal great-grandfather’s registration card.

John William Garrett Clary was born near the northwest corner of Duck Creek Township near Elwood, Madison County, Indiana on August 31, 1898.

The registration card indicates he was 20 years of age but it was dated 1912. While I’m not certain as to why there’s this discrepancy but this find is terrific.

Grandpa Garrett was not the typical grandfather or great grandfather of his era: he was active in our lives and always ready for fun and laughter. If a grandchild or great grandchild was on the floor, so was he.

I adored this man and am grateful to have had him in my life for nearly 33 years.
