Nancy was the daughter of Captain Henry Farley, who served in the Revolutionary War, and Sally Chitwood. She was born in 1793 in Montgomery County, Virginia (now Logan County, West Virginia).

She was first married to Stephen Hensley on April 19, 1814 in Cabell County, Virginia. They had 3 children together:
- Sarah A "Sallie" Hensley Hatfield
- Paulina Hensley Williams
- Stephen Manuel Hensley/Hansley
Stephen died young leaving Nancy a widow with the 3 children.

After Stephen died, Nancy married Pyrrhus McGinnis in Logan County, Virgina. The Logan county courthouse was burned during the Civil War so the marriage record does not exhist and the exact date of the marriage is not known. They may have had some of their 6 children together before they were married. Pyrrhus and Nancy's 6 children are:
- Penelope McGinnis Perry
- Achilles McGinnis
- James Hereford "Fud" McGinnis
- Samuel McGinnis
- Gordon McGinnis
- Thomas Jefferson "Jeff" McGinnis
