It was just thirty-three years Thursday since J.M. Fay came to Fulton and during all that time he has occupied the same residence. He is now sixty years of age and has lived in only two houses in his life. The first twenty-seven years of his life were passed in the house in which he was born, and he moved directly from there to this city and into the one he now occupies. In the thirty-three years he has been a resident of Fulton, he has won the respect of a large circle of friends who hope that he and his wife may still occupy their present home many years to come.
