My take on a tune from a WV compilation cd, called Banjo Legacy and played by Jim Costa.

youtube.com/watch?time_continu...31bHUcTns

According to the liner notes, Lee Blankenship, was from Grienbrier County, West Virginia and heard this tune being played by his father. Blankenship related a story about an Indian found dead at the Cold Knob Mountain area with items found in his possession taken from white settlers in a raid on the Frankford settlement. It was assumed that he been wounded and lost, thus the title. Blankenship was born around around 1900, was a lifelong resident of the county and learned to play on a home made fretless banjo
