Yes. It is by The Cox Family (Bluegrass band).

The Lost Children of The Alleghenies:

Here is a link to the story about the children:

There is also a beautiful song by Alison Krauss called "Jacob's Dream" on her LP "A Hundred Miles or More..."

It is done in the bluegrass style but I'm not sure if it is the same song or tune as done by the Cox Family.

** You are most likely to find the song by Alison Krauss "Jacob's Dream." I researched it and I do not believe The Cox Family has a song. The only reason there is to believe The Cox Family is related to the song is because the two lost boys' last name was Cox. I should know, Jacob Dibert, who found the boys, is one of my ancestor's siblings.
