William Wallace Denslow 1901 illustration for  Hush-a-bye,  Baby,  On the Tree Top
from www.mamalisa.com/ : "One interesting point to note is that Denslow made the mother and baby Native Americans in his illustrations for this selection.  One theory is that this song was created by a pilgrim boy who sailed to America on the Mayflower.  There he saw cradles made out of birchbark hanging from the trees.  (That's how some of the Native Americans made them in those days.)  The boy then wrote down this song."
