History:  

RAY Township (T. 70-71N, R. 22W) was named for Edwin Ray Lewis of Grand Rapids, who was a land surveyor and timber cruiser, often traversing this region. A village in section 6 developed about 1893 with the gold mining boom; its post office was established in 1907, and it had a station of the Duluth, Winnipeg, and Pacific Railway.
