Folk Figure. Clifton T. Clowers of Woolverton Mountain, became a Conway County legend as a result of a popular song written by Claude King and Merle Kilgore and was performed by many artists including Bing Crosby. The song "Woolverton Mountain," warns would-be suitors to stay away from the mountain where Clifton Clowers was protecting his pretty young daughter because "he's mighty handy with a gun and a knife." He was the son of Jefferson Davis Clowers and Mary Prince Clowers. He was a World War I veteran and a member of the Mountain View Baptist Church where he was a deacon for several years. (bio by: Sandy Littlejohn)
