Sounds like Knoxville Girl to me, which is a US version of an old English ballad called The Bloody Miller. The Berkshire Tragedy, Oxford Girl, Wexford Girl, The Noel Girl and The Lexington Miller are all members of the same family of songs springing from this source. And so, arguably, is Banks of the Ohio.
