I have no proof that my line is from your line but the best I have been able to find out is from family stories. I have tracked my line to William Kinsey, Jr. who was born in SC in 1818, moved to Habersham County, Ga, married in Gilmer County, Ga in 1844 and the last I have of him was in Pine Log, Bartow County, Ga. in 1880. I have always been told his father was the Peter Kinsey who came from Germany moved to Irland and then came into Pendleton, SC. I have some land records from SC that show Peter Kinsey Sr and Peter Kinsey Jr and William Kinsey in the time frame that I have been told Peter was in SC. My William's father was supposed to have been Peter Sr's son William. I just can't prove any of this from William Jr back. My grandfather was born in Bartow County, moved to Chattanooga, Tn then to Dade County, Ga and then to Catoosa County Ga where he died. He was James Madison Kinsey. His father was Lorenzo Dow Kinsey.
