One of the most promising and best known of the younger physicians and surgeons of Montgomery County and vicinity is Dr. George P. Ramsey, who, while yet young in years has shown himself to be the possessor of all the varied attributes necessary in the makeup of the successful minister to human ills, having a decided natural talent in this science and also an engaging personality, being a man who commands the respect and confidence of his patients and consequently gets speedy results. He has made a host of friends since establishing himself in his profession here, and is one of our worthiest home boys and in every respect a most creditable representative of the medical profession in a community long noted for the high order of its talent. Dr. Ramsey was born in Crawfordsville, Indiana Feb 18, 1876 and he is a son of William T. and Tabitha J. Hightower Ramsey, the former born in Lexington, KY, finally coming to Montgomery County, Indiana, where he established the permanent home of the family. Here he and Tabitha J. Hightower were married, she having come with her parents to Montgomery County when young. Dr. Ramsey grew to manhood in his native city and here he attended the common schools, and was graduated form the local high school with the class of 1896. Early in life he determined upon a career as a physician and with this end in view he entered Central College of Physicians & Surgeons at Indianapolis (now known as Indiana Medical College). Here he made an excellent record and was graduated with the class of 1900. While in that institution he became a member of the Galenien society, a student literary body and was quite influential in the same. After leaving college, Dr. Ramsey located at Newtown, Fountain County, where he remained six years, building up a satisfactory practice. He then removed to Whitesville, where he remained 3 years with like success. Seeking a larger field for the exercise of his talents he came to Crawfordsville in 1909 and opened an office which he has since maintained every enjoying a large, growing and lucrative patronage. He has kept well up-to-date in his profession by close study as well as practical experience. Fraternally, the Doctor is a member of the Modern Woodmen of America, the Knights of the Maccabees, Fraternal Order of Eagles, and Owls in all of which he is deservedly popular, being nest physician of the last named order. Poltically, he is Republican. For two years he very ably and acceptably discharged the duties of county coroner. Religiously, he is a Baptist. Dr. Ramsey was married on May 15, 1907 to Fannie Smith of near Whitesville, where her family is well and favorably known.
