Favara is a very small town on the southern part of Sicily. Look on a map and it is located just east of Agrigento.

My aunt and uncle went there years ago to visit family and they said that at that time the mayor of town was married to a Favara but I don't have any further information as far as her name goes.

My Favara family came from either Palermo or Salemi Sicily. Antonio Favara married to Rose Marina had a son Vito who emigrated to the US about 1917.

Good luck on your search
