The following is according to the 1918 Fort Worth City Directory:

Kingsbery, Mfg. Co. (Inc.) Joe Kingsbery, jr. pres. Jos Kingsbery, v-pres. B. A. Rose, sec-treas. overall mfrs, 1200-4 E. Front St. (now Lancaster)

The following is from the 1926 Fort Worth City Directory:

Kingsbery Mfg Co, J. Kingsbery Jr pres J Kingsbery treas G C Poston v-pres L P Henry sec 3000-6 E. Front St.

The following is from the 1930 Fort Worth City Directory:

Kingsbery Roofing & Supply Co. Jos Kingsbery Jr. Pres, H C Hullings V-Pres and Genl. Mgr. 1302-4 E. Front St.

The following is from the Fort Worth Magazine (a Chamber of Commerce Publication) June 1937 v. 11, p. 2

E. O. Wood, owner and manager of the E. O Wood Roofing and Metal Co., recently acquired by purchase the stock and business of the Kingsbury Roofing Company. Having been in the sheet metal business for twenty-seven years, Mr. Wood added a roofing department in 1935. Acquisition of the Kingsbury business gives him control of the well known Phillip Carey line in this territory. The roofing department is located at 1300 E. Lancaster where 10,000 square feet of floor space are utilized. The sheet metal department remains at 245 W. 13th Street.


If you would like more information the Fort Worth Public Library, Central Library, Genealogy, History & Archives section has Fort Worth City Directories back to 1877 and you can trace Mr. Kingsbery and his family.

The moderator of that section will have to delete it.

Perhaps he wanted the N'Orleans section to donate some time, otherwise whack it.

Not sure if you are still looking for information on him but he owned the house I currently own and live in (Fort Worth) from 1926 to 1960.
