One of them - Charles Schellenger - was among 10 seaman, including five pilots, lost when the pilot schooner ENOCH TURLEY was swept out to sea by a gale in Sep- tember of ! 889. "We decided to go with the pilot motif in the store and we have pictures from that chapter of our family's history," said Henriksen. "Included is the old family house on Gills Neck Road." Schellenger's fulfills a longtime desire of Henriksen's. "I've al- ways been interested in doing a clothing store. For 17 years I was a secretary for my husband, Jack, in his law office. "When he was appointed a Family Court judge I lost my Job: I couldn't be his secretary there due to the state's nepotism laws. That gave me my chance. I would have liked to do a lady's store but there are enough in downtown Lewes now. I have a small line of lady's clothing but we're concen- trating on men's clothing." Henriksen said Schellenger's will include golfing wear by Bob- by Jones, oxford shirts by Enro, resort clothing from Joey Richi including shirts, pants, sweaters, socks and hats, and alligator-style shirts from LaCoste.
