Personal Notes:
Clara Owen was the wife of Linn Owen who was a neighbor near Lincolnville for many years. They were very special to me, before I learned we were related. He was the son of James Ira and Matilda (Reynolds) Owen . James Ira was a brother to our great great grandmother Mrs. James (Rachel Owen) Tweedy. This recipe was found in Lincolnville's Kitchen Secrets, Lincolnville Methodist Church Cookbook,1951.
