The story of the Fays in Greenville is really the story of Frank L. Fay. Born July 18, 1869, in Cleveland, Ohio (Cuyahoga County), Frank was the stepson of Patrick Fay and son of Mary Murray, both Irish immigrants. He married Sarah Marie Wells of Buffalo, New York, on August 12, 1896. They had four children: Helen, Frank Wells, James Page, and Florence L. In 1903, he moved to Greenville, PA (Mercer County), and established the Greenville Steel Car Company. In 1925, he retired from the company and was elected to the state senate for two terms where he was instrumental in pushing through legislation to create the Pymatuning Dam. In 1940, he was elected president of the board of trustees of Thiel College in Greenville, where he helped construct a dormitory. He is remembered as a charismatic man with a keen sense of humor.
