a Folk Tale says that the first Fain's to come to America got there by mistake. The story is that two brothers (Fain's) were in South Africa on their way back to France or Italy or somewhere like that (don't remember). However, they couldn't read, so... instead of catching a boat destined for home they wound up on a boat to San Francisco. And that is how the Fain's came to America

this Fain Family is a very tightly knit family though spread apart. Andy and Millie live in Ohio near the Ache's. The Browns live in Maryland. The other group of Fain's live in Israel and in Virginia USA. These days we keep tab's through the internet. Every once and a while you may find all of us up in the Massanutten (VA) mountains during the summer or in Ohio or Maryland (and maybe Israel) for Christmas or Thanksgiving.
