So these songs are in addition to those you suggested above.
Barry Finn revived a two more on his CD titled Fathom This (2007) that might be added to the list:
Hard Times in Ol' Virginia (Georgia Sea island Singers as recorded by Lomax on Southern Journey; Lydia Parrish in Slave Songs of the Georgia Sea Islands)
Good-Bye My Riley-O (also in Parrish above)
