Was Nancy, KY, named for Nancy, France?

Charles Marshburn writes:
Was this unincorporated location named for Nancy, France? There are so many Kentucky cities named after European cities and other locations across "the pond". I am thinking those early settlers were homesick for the towns they had left for the new world. Charles M.
A very good question Mr. Marshburn, but well above the ken of the editor of the hour at CM. Perhaps, before more knowledgeable staff takes later shifts, someone out there will enlighten you, and me. - EW
