About Ohalasc, "queen" of the Quiyoughcohanocks

From page 12 of The Cradle of the Republic: Jamestown and James River By Lyon Gardiner Tyler

The neighbors of the Warrascoyacks were the Quiyoughcohanocks, whose territory extended through Surry and Prince George counties. The werowance was Pepiscumah, called for short Pipisco, who kept on good terms with the whites. However, in 1610, he had been deposed by Powhatan, and one of Powhatan's wives, Oholasc, was queen in the minority of her son Tatacope, who lived at Chawopo with Chopoke one of Pipisco's brothers.2 Quiyoughcohanock was on Upper Chippokes Creek, near the present Claremont.
