The seller shared the following information with me:
These recipes came from Shelby Ohio Richland County (Shelby, Richland County, Ohio) estate of a veterinarian we cannot remember his name we are going to ask the auctioneer that done the sale and see if he has the family’s name and when we find out we will surely let you know.

Persons mentioned in this recipe box
Adelaide Christina OLSEN Lanker was born 20 DEC 1919 in Brooklyn, New York and died 23 AUG 2001 in Mansfield, Richland, Ohio, USA. She must be a family friend as I haven’t found a connection to the SOWERS family to date.
I cannot find any information on Helen Hines at this time. I THINK she could be Adelaide’s sister but can’t find a marriage license to prove my theory.
