The Kennedy Sisters


Early Twentieth Century Women in Mineral


From left to right sit Lucy Carter, Mary Alice, and Fannie Tyree Kennedy. Along with a younger and older brother, the girls were the children of John Henry and Capitola Bowles Kennedy. At the young age of 22, Mary Alice died in an “accident,” as listed on the back of the photograph. The other two sisters went on to become part of the first graduating class at Mineral High School and to attend Mary Washington College. As some of the earliest Louisa women to vote, Lucy Carter registered on October 20, 1920, and her sister, Fannie, followed suit in July of 1921.
