George Downing Cleveland was the son of James Cleveland and Jeanette Rathbun.

He grew to manhood on his father's farm near Clyde, where he also attended school. He was married on January 31, 1864 to Rosanna Metz. She died in 1881, leaving three children: Clark, Minnie and Olivia; Bertie died aged thirteen months. He then married Martha Jane Stroup on June 29, 1882. After living a few years elsewhere George settled on his father's old homestead. He bought out the heirs, eventually owning 135 acres just outside of Clyde. He engaged in general farming and stock-raising, and in later years he also devoted considerable attention to fruit. He built an excellent barn and his improvements are among the best in the township. In politics George was a Democrat.
