19th or 20th Century

We have con­flict­ing da­ta on Will­iams. The lyr­ics for The Ju­bilee were first pub­lished in 1842 in Ex­e­ter, New Hamp­shire.

However, the first source we have seen that cre­dits her as the au­thor was pub­lished in Nash­ville, Ten­nes­see in 1916, so per­haps the 1916 ver­sion was just a re­ar­range­ment, and the 1842 text was by a dif­ferent au­thor.
