Thread Name: Mrs. McGraw - origins
Subject: Mrs. McGraw - origins
Can anyone give me more information on the origins/background of the song "Mrs. McGraw" other than this from Wikipedia?

"Although the song probably dates from the time of the Peninsular Wars between 1807 and 1814, the earliest account of it in Ireland was in 1876."
