Most of you Country Music lovers will remember the
song by Claude King about Wolverton Mountain, but
here's something that may surprise even you. It is a
real place, only spelled Woolverton Mountain. And
there was a Clifton Clowers who lived there. He also
had a pretty young daughter (actually he had two
of them), Virginia and Burlene. Woolverton Mountain
is located a few miles north of Morrilton, Arkansas.
For those unfortunate enough to not like Country Music
or have never heard the song, the music playing in the
background is Wolverton Mountain and
I have posted the lyrics below.
Although it's distant, Lola's family connects to Clifton Clowers.

Their youngest son was Clifton Taylor Clowers.
He lived to be nearly 103 years old and is buried in
Woolverton Mountain Cemetery, Conway County, Arkansas. .
