Kinsey clan reunites for 80th reunion



Spread from West Virginia to New Mexico, a dozen descendants of Thomas Kinsey gathered in Gatesville over the weekend to celebrate their heritage and extend their connections on their family tree. Kinsey, born in 1781, raised 14 children with his wife, Sarah Jane McNutt, giving birth from Tennessee to Texas. The Kinsey children include Peter, Roland, Lunsford, Martha Ann, George, Thomas, Henry, Margaret C, Arminda Mary, Francis Marion, Elisha, Madison Gaines and Lucinda. Thomas and Sarah homeschooled their children teaching them to read and write while working the land as a rancher and blacksmith. Gloria Ryan of Bunker Hill, West Virginia made her first appearance at the reunion after learning of the gathering from a cousin.
