RANSOM DOUD, a pioneer of the county, who settled in Talllinadge township in the middle-fifties and has resided there since, died Saturday night at the advanced age of 84 years. He had been in falling health for a number of years.
Mr. DOUD was one of the type of the rugged pioneer. A hale, hearty, man, he was known by all in this section of the county. Mr. DOUD'S death occurred on the farm where he settled sixty years ago in Tallmadge township, on the line of Wright township.
Mr. Doud, up to a few years ago used to visit Coopersville often and many friends here. While he took an active interest in politics, he never held office except that of school trustee in his district. Fraternally he was a Mason and was one of the early members of the Berlin lodge. He was also a member of the Royal Arch Chapter of Grand Haven.
The deceased is survived by his aged wife and five children.
[From the Coopersville Observer archives at the Northeast Ottawa Library-handwritten date says Feb. 27, 1914, which may be date it was in paper.]
