Does anyone know how the HARTLESS BRANCH got it's name

Please help us... We (my family) would like to ask for your help in finding out how the "HARTLESS BRANCH" a stream, located just N of Nacogdoches (partially in Rusk Co.) obtained it's name. We have been plagued with numerous dead ends...

Our early ancestor, Elihue W. Hartless was an Early Pioneer of Rusk Co. whom was born abt. 1826 in either TN or VA (conflicting census records) and died possible after May 1874 but before the 1880 census of Rusk Co.

Elihue married Frances "Fannie" Thomas on Oct 11, 1846 in Rusk Co., we have yet to find out when Frances died or where she is buried as well. We last found her living near Looneyville, Nacogdoches Co., in 1910 with her daughter Mary O. Cabeen and grandaughter Alice Cabeen.

We have nearly given up finding out when Elihue, Frances and Elihue's brother William died, where they died, where they are buried. We hope that finding out how this stream got it's name may at least give us a new lead as to where he may have lived and may be buried perhaps...

Elihue's brother named William E. HARTLESS was born abt. 1829 and died in Cherokee Co. on Aug 22, 1868.

I believe we have checked every cemetery that we know exists and have years of research to no avail.... please help if you can.
