This may not go far but I just thought I would refresh it in case there are new members that are interested.

I find this song very amazing in that it occurred in a time when folks collected these numbers by way of mouth and not thought the radio or today's fast media. My grand father was a lumberjack from Prince Edward Island who went to work in the lumbering woods of Main. There he heard a song that he memorized and brought back to P.E.I. It was passed on to my mother and I sang it last week in a coffee house.
