Birthday songs sung in the US before "Happy Birthday To You"

Looking for music and hopefully audio for birthday songs that might have been sung in the states before ~1860, ideally in English. I feel certain that I have seen a list of such songs in the past, but several decades worth of hubbub about the "Happy Birthday to You" copyright and the generic nature of the possible search terms seem to have have rendered Google helpless. Thanks!

Avantgarde Operatics in London

Avantgarde London: I want to take my girlfriend out to a biggish music/sound performance/event.
