OLD PLANTATION GIRLS. American, Slip Jig (9/8 time). A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Identified by 18th century Glasgow publisher James Aird as "Virginian"  (see also Aird's "Sam Jones" and "Pompey ran Away" for other of Aird's "Virginian" tunes). There is nothing particularly American in the melody's character, however, and probably has a British or Irish provenance.
