I know of a William Hartsell probably from Newport. This William married my great grandmother's sister, Mattie Hoover in Cocke Co. 1906. Mattie died of consumption 1919. Death cert. shows she was divorced. Informant was her sister Ella, who was the wife of Rufus Hartsell married in Cocke Co. 1908. I don't know much about the Hartsells except that two married two of my great grandmother's sisters. Hope this helps.
