The Batchelor's from Nash County are part of my own line.
The book "By Faith and Heritage Are We Joined - A Compilation of Nash County Historical Notes" was written as a bicentennial tribute and was compiled and published by the Nash County Bicentennial Commission (Edited by T.E. Ricks). A wonderful book on the history of Nash County, North Carolina - but, unfortunately it did not contain an index. I indexed the book for Braswell Memorial Library in Rocky Mount - which has a wonderful large genealogy room and concentrates on counties in eastern North Carolina.
One piece you may find interesting (p.169) "Peach Tree Missionary Baptist is also one of the early churches in the county (Nash). The oldest minutes bear the date 1809, but it was estabilished long before that time. The first building was a small log structure across the creek from the present site and was called Moses' Meeting House....Early leaders were Batchelors, Wheelesses and Griffins."
I wish you good fortune in your search.
