GUEST,Eleanor Origins: Poor Old Woman/Housewife's Lament (35) RE: Origins: Poor Old Woman/Housewife's Lament 11 Nov 15

I found this book in the Independent Woman's Songbook, published I think in the 1970s, with the same story about it being found in the diary of a housewife who had lost her sons in the American Civil War - don't know where they got it from, and I'm afraid I don't have the book any more to check for more details.
