The song certainly had a presence in PEI. Check out p.93 on that link. I have never heard Luboff's version/arrangement. Perhaps you can tell from the melody notation and lyrics whether NL was influenced by it. That said, the song was darned near ubiquitous and I have been unable to locate any specific references providing 'proof' that Luboff got it from PEI.
