If you google Keep on the Sunny Side you will find it was written by Ada Blenkhorn in 1899. The Song was certainly associated with The Carter Family and they all sang it very well.

I'm almost 100% sure that it was Mother Maybelle Carter of Carter Family fame and Mother of June Carter Cash who was married to the legendary Johnny Cash. As to when it was written, I believe in the twenties. However, I would have to research to find a speicific answer. When I find the particular year I will edit my comments.
The answer to the second part of the question is 1927 or 1928 at least regarding recording. You may have to order sheet music to get a definite date. If you like bluegrass music, then check out bluegrasslyrics.com which is where I found this year with dozens of other links.
Hope this helps.
