Accohanoc Indians. A tribe of the Powhatan confederacy that formerly lived on the river of the same name, in Accomac and Northampton counties, Virginia. They had 40 warriors in 1608. Their principal village bore the name of the tribe. They became mixed with Negroes in later times, and the remnant was driven off at the time of the Nat Turner insurrection, about 1833. (J. M.)
