Ramaker was a "entrepreneur" (Wynonna rephrases as "outlaw") in the 1860's, but was caught killing his business partner. Wyatt Earp sentenced him to hang where it took him 14 minutes to die. Alternatively, the Wynonna Earp website states that he was an outlaw, thief, and train robber and lists his death in 1882, also by hanging.
Ramaker is first seen when Kiersten Lesko and Wynonna Earp get off the Bluntline bus headed to Purgatory. It's most likely that Ramaker is the one that caused the bus to get the flat tire. He kills and decapitates Kiersten and goes after Wynonna as well. She is able to defend herself and stab Ramaker in the eye before he runs off. Ramaker lures Wynonna to the Earp Homestead by kidnapping Waverly Earp and tying a noose around her neck. He reveals his plan of killing Curtis McCready to get Wynonna to come back to Purgatory and deliver Peacemaker. Wynonna is able to shoot apart the noose around Waverly, which ricochets off a pulley and disarms Ramaker. Then, Wynonna shoots him with Peacemaker and sends him back to hell.
