Ballad sung in North Carolina cotton mills. "Little Mary Phagan," written by Fiddlin' John Carson, and sung here by his daughter Rosa Lee Carson (also known as "Moonshine Kate"), is based on the true-life murder of Mary Phagan, a 13-year old girl employed at the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta, Georgia, who was found murdered in April 1913. Her employer, Leo Frank, who was eventually convicted of the crime, was lynched by a group of prominent Georgia citizens in Aug. of 1915. There is still controversy over whether Frank or janitor Jim Conly was the murderer
