My Grandfather sat us upon his knee as young children and sang Wolverton Mountain! He would tell us he knew Clifton Clowers and he, himself, was raised on Wolverton Mountain. My great-grandmother is buried there. Claude King gave us wonderful stories written to music -- never to be forgotten by so many! I'm 54 and I met Clifton Clowers at his home on Wolverton Mountain when I was 10...I was afraid! But he was a nice man and so was Mr. King I've read! Peace be with Barbara, sons and family. You were the lucky ones!

He had A Beautiful Voice & while we'll still hear his songs here...Heaven's Hearing Him sing up there. I look forward to meeting him one day and also hearing him sing in Heaven! May God's Comfort be upon his Family! You're in my Prayers! ?

Thanks for the memories...
they're sweeter than honey ;)

Very first forty-five record I bought as kid growing up in Pendleton, Ore was Wolverton Mountain.
Still have record, still know all the words.

In honor of and in memory of Claude King,
a tree will be planted on our Washougal, WA property,
located on NW slope of Mt. Norway.

Condolences to family,

So happy to hear that Claude King lived to be 90 and also have his wife with him.
Memories go back to when the song "Wolverton Mountain came out... My Dad was so elated about it since he was born on that mountain in Ark. and grew up with Clifton Clowers. To prove that, he had Clifton Clowers send a Post Card to each family of his saying that they knew each other - and bought the record.
Just this summer, while passing through the Ozarks, I went up to the mountain to find the cemetery where my grandmother is buried. There I also found the grave of Clifton Clowers along with his wife, Esther. Thank you Claude King for a memorable song.
