Nancy Anney Dunning was born Sept 18, 1820 in Kentucky to Naum Dunning and Mary "Polly" Hughey-Dunning.
Nancy was married first in Caldwell County, Kentucky, on March 26, 1837 to James Pettit. James died 1839 in Caldwell County, Kentucky. Nancy married a second time to William Monroe Pendleton. She and William were married by J. A. Cartwright and her name is given as Anney Pettit.
Nancy's father, Naum Dunning, was born in 1798 in Pitt County, North Carolina, and died April 1836. He was the son of Jesse Dunning, Jr., born in 1774 in Bertie County, North Carolia, died August 1836, and his wife, Atha, born in 1774 in North Carolina, died April 4, 1852 in Caldwell County, Kentucky. Jesse was the son of Jesse Dunning, Sr., born in 1736 in North Carolina, died in 1813 in Caldwell County, and his wife Patience.
Nancy's parents were married November 28, 1819 in Caldwell County, Kentucky. A few years after the death of Naum, Mary "Polly", the daughter of John Hughey (born in 1764, died in 1837), was married on January 30, 1844 in Caldwell County, to William K. West. Mary was born April 1, 1797 in North Carolina, died August 6, 1880 in Lawrence County, Missouri, and is buried in the Dover Baptist Church Cemetery.
Nancy was a midwife and delivered many of her grandchildren, nieces and nephews. The last record found, so far, showing her as a midwife was in 1888, just four years prior to her death at the age of 72 years. One of the annual events that the family looked forward to every year was the Chesapeake Camp Ground religious camp meetings. It was during the one held in 1892 that Nancy Pendleton died. A record of some of the meetings was kept in the diary of Mr. Dobbin Hillhouse, and her death is mentioned in his diary. Her grave has a marker, but there is not one on William's. He is presumed to be buried in the unmarked grave next to her. Since 1987 a new headstone in at the cemetery with both of their names listed, with their dates of birth and death.
William Monroe and Nancy were the parents of nine children; the three oldest ones born in Caldwell County, Kentucky, and the six younger ones born in Lawrence County, Missouri.

William obtained fifty-five acres of land from the General Land Office (Certificate No. 25063) in 1860, just down the road from the Dover Baptist church. By 1879, he had eighty acres of land in Township 27, Range 25 West, Section 3. This is where he and Nancy raised all nine children.
