Of interest because it's early and in white use.

1938 Alan Lomax "Mss., Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois"
The people here have the pioneer candor. Potter, Delmas and the rest [of
the lumbermen] loved their wives...because they were good partners in the
bed and say so. Delmas, the old man, was terribly sentimental about his
dead Indian wife, proud of...her ability to cook and her good booty.
