The tune was recorded by fiddler William B. Chenoweth (1858-1946, born on a farm in Dallas, Dallas County, Texas), and his group Chenoweth's Cornfield Symphony Orchestra, which consisted of family members. They were the very first country music band to be recorded (previous recordings were of single fiddlers, or fiddle duets), when OKeh records sent a portable recording studio in a truck to Dallas, in 1924. Chenoweth also recorded under the name The Texas Fiddlin' Wampus Cat and His Kittens.
Although he died a pauper, Chenoweth led a colorful life. In addition to his musical talents, he was an inventor and holder of some 17 patents for items such as an internal combustion engine, electrical appliances, a wind-generator, and a flying machine. The 2010 reminiscence  by his grandson, Joseph Thomas Chenoweth, makes for fascinating reading, and is reproduced below in its entirety (courtesy of Joe Chenoweth and the Chenoweth Family Website).
William Benjamin Chenoweth 1868-1946
Inventor & Musican: the Legacy of W. B. Chenoweth
by Joseph Thomas Chenoweth [July 2010]
My grandfather, William Benjamin Chenoweth, the oldest of Joseph & Rebecca Ann Crawford Chenoweth’s children who lived, was born on a farm in Dallas Co., Texas in 1868. Like most farm kids he grew up learning how to make do with what you had – and if something had to be built or something broke you had to fix it with whatever you had around the place – because town was too far away and there wasn’t enough money to buy whatever you needed anyway. Bill Chenoweth was a little more advanced in that regard, as he inherited mechanical aptitude at the genius level. Though he never made it out of high school, his initial profession was that of a mechanical draftsman, then a locomotive designer, and then an inventor. He married Anne Elvira Crenshaw in Nevada, Collin Co, TX in 1889.
