Also see . . . The Bonham Daily Favorite. The Bonham Daily Favorite was founded on May 2, 1910. The paper is an outgrowth of the weekly Fannin County Favorite, which was founded by Dr. J. M. Terry sometime around 1880 and absorbed the Bonham Democrat. According to some sources, Terry began to publish a daily edition of the paper known as the Daily Favorite in addition to the weekly in the 1890s, and this paper subsequently passed through a long series of owners.
