1700s NH/MA: Benjamin Greely Cole changed name to Benjamin Greeley Favor-adopt?
Hi, My 1700s ancestor Benjamin Greely Favor may have been adopted, and thus changed his last name to Favor...
I found an entry at the NEHG Society in Boston, in the "Massachusetts Name Changes, 1780-1892" where a Benjamin Greely Cole changed his name to Benjamin Greeley Favor. Could this be my ancestor Ephraim Favor's father who may have been adopted by a Favor?
Would love to work on this with anybody in this line, thanks,
