do you know any non married colonial women who were heros

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here are two books that may help you:

Lyons, Clare A. "Single in the Quaker City"
Reviews in American History - Volume 29, Number 1, March 2001, pp. 15-22
The Johns Hopkins University Press

Karin Wulf's book "Not All Wives"

Eliza Lucas Pinckney, Colonial Woman Extraordinaire of Charleston, South Carolina (later Pinckney, married at 22) experimented with indigo.

Colonial Women in Business and the Professions
Willoughby Cyrus Waterman
Journal of Social Forces, Vol. 2, No. 5 (Nov., 1924), pp. 728-729
The book above may name some women.

It looks like it will be difficult for you to find many names although, indeed, there were single women in Colonial Times.
