Worden, O. N.
Railway Press; Lewisburg, PA; 1868
pp32-33: "Peter Worden, 2d, was the only son, and Executor of Peter Worden, 1st, and
inherited his whole estate in England and America. In his Will, P.W. 1st left a goat to
his grandson John Lewis - of whom, I know nothing more. It is stated that P.W. 1st had
also a daughter Eleanor, who married (1st) John Adams, and (2d, about 1634?) Kenelm
Winslow, 1st. This, and even other daughters might have received their portion before the
Will was made, and were therefore not named in it... His Will is dated 9 Jan. 1680, and
proved 3 March, 1681. Prob. born in England, 1609 - age at death, 72 years. His wife Mary
Worden [Sears? or Winslow?] survived him six years. Her Will, dated March, 1686, was
proved May, 1687 - age 77? years."
