The NCHSC is pleased to announce the addition of the Nancy Harwood Garrett Family History Collection to the Wallace Room’s genealogy collection.

Nancy Harwood Garrett, daughter of Richard Henry Harwood III and Nancy Goffigon Wescoat of Northampton County, VA, was born on September 16, 1937 in Portsmouth, VA.  

The collection documents her ancestry back to the time of Charlemagne and details her connections to other early eastern shore Virginia families.
