I was recently given my great-great grandmother's (Mary Eva Oden Robison's) cookbook. These recipes were included in the cookbook titled "Mary Elizabeth's Cook Book" copyright 1917 in Columbus, OH.
I think she had a sweet tooth like me because the baking section of the cookbook was very heavily used! There are plenty of fingerprint smudges, stains, tears, and missing corners.
