I am not familiar with your
grandparents names, but the
name "Favor" is derived from the French name "LeFevre". The LeFevres were an old French Hugenot
family who had to leave France because of religious
persecution in the 1600's.
They first went to England and Holland, then alot of them emigrated to America.
Some branches of the family
kept the French spelling and
some anglicized the name to
Favor, Faver, Favour, etc.
One branch of the Favors settled in GA, and later AL and TX.
