I believe this locale is in the vicinity of Carteret and Onslow Counties, and would suggest you check the early records in those two Eastern NC counties under the name spelling of "HATSELL" as well as "HATCHELL" and "HATCHEL." The HATSELL spelling was quite common for HATCHELL in both NC and Southside VA where the HATCHELL family originated. Although I haven't traced any of the African-American branches of these, I suspect they stem from slaves owned by William Hatsell/Hatchell, Henry Hatsell/Hatchell, and/or Armistead Hatsell/Hatchell in Carteret County by 1779 from Mecklenburg County, VA and their descendants. One of Henry's sons, Richard Lewis Hatchell, settled in Onslow County across the White Oak River from Hatchell's Point also known as Hatchell's Mill in Carteret County ca 1800. Good luck!
