mg Origins: need copyright information on some songs (14) RE: Origins: need copyright information on some songs 01 Feb 18


Yes ..thanks. I am still worried about possible slipups though, which is why I go through a search with an agency...families can somehow retain copyrights I think....it is prob best to double check.

I am curious about nelly was a lady and should start a new thread..but i won't...if it was published in 1849, was Nelly a slave?
She was on the Mississippi and was from Virginia the song says..that would have been an incredibly dangerous job for her husband, I would believe, whether he was free or a slave..prob more if he were free...or she was..out alone on the Mississippi at night with slave hunters roaming around...I almost think this was written about a true person..does anyone know? There is an old movie about Stephen Foster called Nelly was a lady...i have not watched all of it...anyway, it is a very important song...anyway, it is a very important song.
