Population: 982

Meeting date: 2nd Monday of each month, 8:00 p.m. at Township Hall

Orasmus Doty was a contributor to early Ransom's population. In 1838 he and his brother came to what is now Ransom. The township 8 and fractional 9 South was named Rowland on January 28, 1840, in honor of Rowland Bird, a native of Massachusetts. He was the first settler there. Several years later an act was passed through the influence of certain parties living in what is now Amboy, and on March 9, 1848 was changed to Ransom. The inhabitants weren't satisfied thinking the name of the pioneer should be honored and so they changed the name to Bird. The strife not ended, on March 29, 1850 it was changed to Ransom, which it has since remained.
