How Coosawhatchie really got its name

Regarding a recent letter concerning the Coosawhatchie River, as a 67-years-old native of Coosawhatchie whose family's roots are deep in the farmland of the Okatie River, I need to set the record straight relative to how Coosawhatchie got its name. The Coosaw Indian tribe's word for river was "hatchie." Hatchie was not another tribe.
