Freeman Briley Ransom (1884-1947) studied theology at Walden University and Law at Columbia University. Moving to Indianapolis in 1911, he boarded with C.J.

Ransom held a variety of civic and elected positions including Indianapolis City Councilman, President of Flanner house, State School for the Blind Trustee, Democratic National Convention Alternate Delegate, Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church Trustee and legal consultant to the NAACP. The family home at 848 North California Street stands today in a neighborhood now named after him.
