About Franklin Norton Ray

Frank Ray was a home builder in East Providence. He taught Sunday School at Harmony Hall In East Providence in 1904. He was a Masonic Knight Templer and a member of the East Providence Town Council for a number of years.

In those days Banks didn't offer mortgages and they were commonly privately held. As a builder Frank offered mortgages to many who purchased his homes. When the depression occurred, many were unable to make mortgage payments and in every case Frank forgave those payments allowing everyone to stay in their homes. Frank was remembered for this by both children and grandchildren of those affected.
