Nancy and her brother Thomas Nunn Pace have tombstones in a small plot called the Pace-Hensley Cemetery which is located on a small knoll just northeast of the intersection of Highway 90 with the Edmonton Road. It is grown up and invisible from the road.

Thomas Nunn Pace, brother to Nancy Gatewood Pace, married Docia Williams and they had 7 children: William, Sallie Ann, Joseph, Elizabeth Frances, Edward, John, and Henry Slaughter Pace. The family moved to Lewis County MO sometime before 1840. Following Docia's death in 1841, Thomas moved back to Kentucky, settling in Cumberland County. As the children grew up, Thomas lived with first one and then the other until the end of his life.
