Location of cron files on a CentOS system

I needed to know the last time crontab had been used to update the cron table (crontab) file for a user account on a CentOS 7 system, since an expected output file from a cron job that should have been created from the last modification to the cron file had not appeared. On a CentOS Linux system, the crontab files can be found in /var/spool/cron.
# ls -l /var/spool/cron
total 8
-rw-------. 1 jdoe jdoe 409 Apr  7 12:32 jdoe
-rw-------. 1 root root 542 Jan  1  2015 root

The files are used to schedule jobs to run periodically on the system and can be edited with crontab -e. A crontab file for an account can be viewed by issuing the command crontab -l while logged into that account.
