The last time I looked at Frank and Ann Warners book of Folk music,"Knoxville Girl" was a derivation of " the Wexford Tragedy." It's been years since I've read the book, but I believe Ann states that there are over 1000 versions of this song. For my money Townes van Zandts suicide ballad,"Tecumseh Valley," fits right inthis category.
