Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 2
Hi,

I found one version published in the US in 1939, no source given, and two from the 1840s (one is a broadside from Forget-Me-Not Songster). Several versions can be traced through family accounts earlier- one to c. 1716 (Cox).

Any other early US or Canadian versions?
