Former Ashland resident Patsy Bowden McCrory's collection of 4, 5, and 6-leaf clovers were preserved for over 60 years in a small white child's Bible she bought at the age of 9 with money she won from a Memphis Press Scimitar newspaper coloring contest about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs that was re-released in 1958. The 3-leaf shamrock is the traditional symbol of St. Patrick's Day, but these are considered more rare.

Bibles and clover are not usually connected, but in this case they are.
