Other Info: In April 1928 Miss Wilson was teaching piano classes to several boys and girls in the colony. The Girls' Melody Way Club had had twelve weeks of classes and included Hope and Ruth Shoemaker, Beatrice Jensen, Lynn Rogers, Rhea Mae Baldwin, Irene Hewitt, Vivian and Iris Busick, Mary and Myrtle Gregerson.

In October 1928 she was part of a group of girls including: Helen Joe, Iris Busick, Mary Gregorson, Myrtle Gregorson, Lynn Rogers and Vivian Busick who sang "Old Kentucky Home".

In February 1929 she demonstrated the benefit she has derived from her piano instruction classes at a theater production. Afterwards Dixon presented his own one-act comedy, "Soapy." The cast included: Soapy - Ch. Black; J. Jink - Joe Turner, Silvers - Mr. Doherty, News-boy - Volney Rogers, Mrs. Doon - Mrs. Hewitt, Donnie Doon - Miss Jennie Black, and Laura Doon - Miss Lynne Rogers. It was a fine play and Mrs. Hewitt showed her masterful skill in handing it to J.Jinks with the broom-stick. Dixon showed his proficiency as stage manager in fine shape.

At some point, probably in 1962 she married a Mr. Clark and changed her name with the Social Security Administration.
