This is an appeal to M. Lozer. I noticed that you have information on Maryland branches for Favorite.
I have been researching gggrandfather Lewis (Louis) Favorite for some time and have no clues except that he was born in MD ca 1816. He married Mary from NY and their first child was born in KY. The remainder, including my ggrandmother, were born in FL near the naval base in Pensacola. He was a carpenter and I can only assume that he may have gone there to work at the base. Mary is head of household in an 1880 census. She is not buried with him.
