What did they sing when the Oktoberfest Started?

The original "Oktoberfest" occurred in Munich, on October 18, 1810.
This is our time frame. I think it should extend up till about 1860 or so as we should give the fest a time to develop into a large local event.

Today's hisoric Oktoberfest songs date from much, much later times- most come from the end of the 19th century and early 20th century. Oktober fest songs are growing each year.

What do you know of the older music? Any good sources. Remember we are interested in the province of Bavaria here.
