Bob Jowers, nephew of Callie Jowers Cole, advised on 26 Mar 2009 that Keefe, TN is a farming community east of Wynnburg, NT. As he understands, the Jowers family grew up in this area. Adam Jowers, after not being successful in farming began a grocery or general store in Wynnburg until his death. He does not know when his wife, Beulah Tidwell Jowers died, nor did he have a date of Adam's second marriage. He furnished family records of birth dates of Adam and Beaula's children.
