Evelyn Huckins is the daughter of Jennie Gray. Mrs. Huckins recorded several songs her mother knew growing up. Mrs. Gray’s mother gave each of her daughters a little notebook of songs as a Christmas present one year, entitled “The Songs My Mother Used to Sing.” “The Cambric Shirt”was not in this book, but Mrs. Huckins recalled that her mother had often sung it to her.
