Richie - re Karpele's Lover's Ghost from Newfoundland, the Roud index lists 2 (both printed in Folk Songs From Newfoundland):

  Version a (pp100-101): 20 Sept 1929, Matthew Aylward, Stock Cove, NL
  Version b (pp101-102)   1 Oct 1929, James Day, Fortune Harbour, NL

(These two are the only 2 with Karpeles as collector and Child 248 as Other number; also the only 2 with Karpeles as collector and Lover's ghost as title).
