I hope I didn't get your hopes up. I used US Search.com to find the names and then tried AOL White Pages for a phone number for the names. There was a James M Dowtin 85 in Asheville NC and Louis H. Dowtin in Asheville. I found a John M Dowtin at 708 Sunset Greensboro NC 27408 PH# 336-275-9682. He could be a son he was in his 50s. There is a Rex Dowtin in Ashville at 85 Forest Rd. Asheville NC PH# 828-274-3340 he also may be a son. Hope this is of some help. If I have confused you I'm sorry. Bob C.
