Please note that those nine refs above represent only 7 reports.

I should have checked each of the books mentioned above for further refs - Helen Creighton (and Doreen Senior - Trad Songs from Nova Scotia) cites "Maggie Godden" in J H Cox: Folk Songs from the South" and another version of her own collecting called "Maggie Gordon" - she also points out similarities to "Waly Waly" and to "Little Sparrow" (Paul Brewster: Ballads and Songs of Indiana) and to "Youth and Folly" also from Cox FS of the South
