My name is Michael Hinsley,son of Benjamin Hinsley,born in Harris County,Texas,1914. He was the son of Benjamin Franklin Hinsley,born,1885,San Felipe,(Austin County)Tx. son of T.O.Hinsley,(Thomas?) Son of J.J.Hinsley(born,Franklin County,Georgia,1820). T.O. Hinsley was born in Clarke County,Miss.1856(?) and arrived in San Felipe(Austin County) around 1860.B.F. Hinsley had an elder brother,named Thomas,who supposdly went off to Little Rock,and also, two sisters,Mary, and ? When I was in San Felipe(Austin County) in 1991,there were two graves in town,for Robert and ,I believe,Stephen,two ne'er do wells, according to the mayor of that time.I've been trying to add to this lore for years and hope to add to it now in this age of the internet. I am very interested in the entire history of AustinCounty,Texas.
