Giles A. Ransom, D.D.S., who is engaged in the successful practice of his profession in the village of Caledonia, was born at New Albin, Allamakee County, Iowa, Aug. 6, 1885, son of Giles N. H. and Estella (Avery) Ransom, his father being a Methodist minister. Dr. Ransom acquired his elementary education in the schools of New Albin, but is to a large extent self educated. Ambitious to succeed in life, he selected the profession of dentistry, for which he qualified himself by taking the regular course in dental surgery at the Northwestern University, Chicago. Establishing an office at Eitzen, on the southern border of Houston County, in Winnebago Township, he began the practice of his profession there, driving to business each day from New Albin where for the time being he retained his residence, on account of social ties. Among the latter may be mentioned his connection with the choir of the Methodist church. In 1917 Dr. Ransom opened his office in Caledonia, where he has since practiced, having established a good clientele. He is a member of the Methodist church here and also of the Commercial Club. In 1910 he was united in marriage with Loraine Bird, and he and his wife are the parents of three children, Ronald, Norma and Glenn.
