The Kingsport Times (TN), November 26, 1947:

Jonesboro Men Buy Ridgefields Farm's Registered Aberdeen - Angus Cattle Herd

The entire herd of registered Aberdeen-Angus cattle, consisting of over 100 head, has been sold by C. P. Edwards, Jr. owner of Ridgefields Farm of Kingsport, for an undisclosed amount to Keefauver Brothers of Jonesboro, according to an announcement yesterday.

The sale is reported to be one of the largest transactions of pure bred beef cattle made in this section for some time. The reason for the sale was the fact that several hundred acres of Ridgefields Farm are now being divided into a real estate development, golf course and country club. The herd will remain at Ridgefields Farm probably until next spring.
Started in 1942

This herd was started in 1942 and represents some of the best cattle selected from the leading Angus breeders, such as Hardwicks Farm, Tolan, French Broad Farms, Macmor Farms, and other leading farms. Whenever the Ridgefields Farm cattle have been offered for sale, they consistently sold with the top cattle, and when shown, they have won many blue ribbons.
The Keefauver Brothers Farm, owned by Joe and Jack Keefauver, is located in the Boone's Creek community. Their herd of Angus is well known throughout the Southeast, having been founded from the top animals from Hardwicks Farm. They had the Supreme Champion Female at the Southeastern Sale and just recently had the Grand Champion Female at the Southeastern World's Fair. They have also recently sold cattle into the states of Georgia, Michigan, Montana and Tennessee.
Leading Herds

They have several sons and daughters of the last year's International Grand Champion Eileenmere 500 and with the addition of the leading Ridgefields Farm cattle, it will give them one of the leading herds of Aberdeen-Angus cattle in the entire Southeast.

Mr. Edwards plans to continue to operate the remainder of the farm with commercial cattle.

Joe Keefauver will continue as manager of Ridgefields Farm. He has been connected with them since May, 1946, having formerly been manager of the Hardwicks Farm of Cleveland, Tenn.

Note: I doubt that they knew this at the time but the wife of C.P. Edwards, Jr. and the Keefauver brothers were fourth cousins.
