Cherry Preserves Recipe Card Front

Front of the recipe card for Cherry Preserves.

Newspaper clipping with the Cherry Preserves recipe.

There is not a notation of the publication nor the published date.

Based on the information I found on it is assumed that the recipe was published between 1923 – 1965 (the time when she became Mrs. Dague between when she passed away).

There is a notation at the end that the recipe is from Mrs. Clara E. Dague of Decatur, Indiana. Using I was able to find the following out about Mrs. Dague.

  • Her full name is Clara Edith SPUHLER Dague
  • She was born in 1888 in Missouri to Frederick SPUHLER and Carline L. GEPHART
  • She died in 1965 in Indiana, where she is buried
  • She married Thomas Jefferson DAGUE after 1923, when his first wife passed away
