From David Neale (slightly edited and abridged; clips and pics added)

Although the song was composed by Tepper and Bennett, it was based on the much older classical piano piece, ‘To A Wild Rose’, by American composer Edward MacDowell.

"To A Wild Rose" was first published in MacDowell's Opus 51, "Woodland Sketches" in 1896; "To A Wild Rose" is sketch number 1 of 10 and is based on a tune sung by the Brotherton Native American tribe.

‘To A Wild Rose’ was originally recorded by Victor Herbert And His Orchestra in 1910.
The Victor Herbert recording was released on a cylinder by the Edison's National Phonograph Company as an Edison Standard Record, number 10338, in April 1910.

Herbert re-recorded the number in May 1919 and that recording was released on Victor 45187.
