Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 6
Hi Steve,

I don't doubt that Baring-Gould recreated the ballad as he has been known to merge different versions (Sharp).

I am curious about the West Virginia version and don't know what to make of it - unless it's dismissed as a forgery.

TY
