Even a poor person could one day live at Pennsylvania Ave.
Is poor person considered a proper noun cause it names a specific person.

No, it is a common noun. Now if it had been "...Sam Jones, a poor person, may someday live ..." Sam Jones would be a proper noun, but person would be a common noun used as a describer.

No, those are not proper nouns, they are not the name of anyone or thing.
