Question for older folks from the Wilson Point area

I lived in the area as a child. Some of the people I remembe are: Bonnie Miller, Cecil Wade, Linda Wade, Gail Greenough, Jimmy Greenough, Mrs. Bobo (who lived on Floral Place), Mr, Kirk (on Second Road), Nancy Cochran (lived on shore Road), Eric Stoer (lived on Wilson Point Rd), also two sisters Linda and Nancy Krause (I think that was the last name).
I lived there in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. Went to Chase Consolidated School for 3rd and 4th. Had Mrs Cowart fr 3rd, and Mr. Edgar for 4th (at Cowington Annex).
Also I think there was a little store on Wilson Point near Floral Pl. names Catherine's. That was the first place I ever had a Dr. Pepper! They tasted a LOT different back then)
I am talking about the 1950s. When I lived tere, Hurricane Hazel hit, and knockeddown a huge tree across the street from our house.
I got my first bicycle from Mrs. Bobo, a really old fashioned "English Racer", but actually learned to ride on Gail Greenough's bike.
In 4th grade with Mr. Edgar, our class learned the entire score of "Pirates of Penzance (by Gilbert and Sullivan) and were starting on H>M>S> Pinafore before the school year ended.
Went to 5th grade at the "new" Hawthorne Elementary' Have no recollection of the teacher's name. Must not have been too memorable.
We went to the Beach Club in the summer. Remember LOTS of jelly fish there! Also remember that the lady who owned Skarie Saw company was supposed to be living at the end of Wilson Point Rd.
Old folks, if any of these names or places ring a bell I would loveto hear about your memories of them. And would love to now what happened to these people (and any others who went to those same schools.)
