Howells Queries: Poem about Margaret Garner?

I was wondering if someone could answer a question for me; I’m assisting a faculty member at Northern Kentucky University.  We are interested in a poem W.D. Howells wrote about Margaret Garner (but the poem may not contain her name).  We think it could have been published in either The Ohio State Journal or perhaps the Ashtabula Sentinel, around 1856 (neighborhood).  Are you aware of any poem that fits this description?  Can you offer any citation information so that we may attempt to find it?

Thank you for your time and assistance,
