About Elizabeth Kennon (Worsham)

Richard Kennon, Sr. must have died prior to 1703, because in that year Elizabeth Kennon joined a group that included eight other people of influence and patented 4,000 acres on a creek called Winterpock in southwest Chesterfield.  It appears that she entered this deal on behalf of her sons who were not of age.

This lady seems to have been business minded because she was also listed as the proprietor of a ferry which operated from Point of Rocks to the Prince George side of the Appomattox.  She operated this as late as 1720 when she would have been around fifty-five years old; an advanced age for a colonial lady.
