Hey Mike you really should get out more and try Google from time to time
then you might have read:-
"Minstrelsy was very high in popularity in the 1840's when Edwin Christy, a nineteenth century minstrel who wrote Goodnight Ladies among other songs, formed the Christy Minstrels. Minstrelsy continued as a part of the American music scene until about the 1950's."
John Fowles
there's a lot of it out there if you take the trouble to look!!
