List of Contributors to the Gulf City Cook Book, 1878

While typically you have to read through a community cookbook to find the names of all the women who contributed, there are times when an index or list  is provided. Sometimes this index provides the page numbers and other times it's simply a list of names.

Such is the case for the Gulf City Cookbook found on Internet Archive.

Have family from Mobile, Alabama who attended the Methodist Episcopal Church, South?  You may want to check this list of recipe contributors found on page 9 of the cookbook. Of course, women who are married are listed by their husband's name.
