Hi, Conrad -
Probably the best-known was Death of a Romish Lady. The Digital Tradition reports that this song was a childhood favorite of Abraham Lincoln. The Traditional Ballad Index reports versions of this song as early as 1586.
Oh, and don't forget that you posted the Boston Pope Day Ballad in 2000.
