The following information is taken from two separate biographical articles for Thomas Kinsey, Sr in the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and from a third biographical article in the History of Bell and Coryell Counties, Texas for Elisha Kinsey, the son of Thomas Kinsey, Sr and Sarah Jane McNutt:
Thomas Kinsey, Sr received Republic of Texas Land Grant No. 382 in Nov 1839. On 19 Dec 1839, he obtained a Second Class Headright grant.
During 1840, the family lived in both Fannin County, Texas near Bonham, and in Red River County, Texas. In 1843, because of Indian trouble, the family had to retreat for a short time to Arkansas before returning to Wood County, Texas in 1844.
In 1849, the family moved to Waco, Texas, where Thomas Kinsey, Sr was a blacksmith. In 1850, they moved to Coryell County, Texas, where they helped to establish and organize this county. In 1852, they were driven off their land by the Indians and moved to Bell County, Texas, but they returned in 1853 to their homestead in Coryell County. In 1858, they moved to Gatesville, Texas.
Elisha Kinsey tells that the ancestors of his father, Thomas Kinsey, Sr, were of German descent, settled in Virginia in Colonial times (the German surname was Kuntz or Kuntze). Thomas Kinsey, Sr was a Primitive Baptist.
Elisha Kinsey tells that the ancestors of his mother, Sarah Jane McNutt, were a prominent family of Irish descent, also settled in Virginia in Colonial times. Sarah Jane McNutt Kinsey was a Methodist.
