Hi Jo: Your message was written awhile back but hope you're still there!My great-grandmother was an Elizabeth Favorite or Favourite born ca 1848 in Pensacola, Fla. Her father Lewis was listed in a censusas having been born in Maryland ca 1816. That's all the info I have about where he came from. He worked at the naval base in Pensacola as a carpenter so may have gone to Fla for work.He had one child born on the way, I'm assuming, as her birthplace was Kentucky--the next child born in Florida. I'm writing to you in hopes that you have info on the MD Favorites since it may shed some light on mine. Do you know where the name came from?
