LOOKING FOR GEORGE SUTTER
Members of his family or anyone who
knows or knew him
Mr. George Sutter lived in the Bronx,
NY at 153 E. 165th St. in the 1940's. I believe he may of resided
and worked at the Grand Plaza Hotel there as he used that phone
number in his classified ads for his country boarding house, which
was the former Knapp Mansion located in Mastic Beach, Long Island,
George Sutter's former Mastic Beach
home in 1950
Moriches Tribune March 1941
George, a Greek immigrant, was a headwaiter
(1930's) and possibly a manager of the at the Grand Concourse
Hotel in The Bronx in the 1940's. His wife Lillian was from Austria
and they had one child in 1930, also a George who could possibly
alive today. There could also possibly be more children. The Sutters
owned the Knapp Mansion in Mastic Beach from Jan 1941 - May 1950,
when they sold it to the Diocese of Brooklyn and St. Jude's Church
in Mastic Beach
GEORGE'S WW 2 DRAFT CARD PROVES MY HUNCH WAS RIGHT AS TO HIS OCCUPATION
WHEN HE PURCHASED THE KNAPP MANSION.
This was the Grand Concourse Plaza
Where the Sutter Family resided according
to the Knapp Mansion Deed of Jan 1941
The last known address I have for Mr.
Sutter is in Manhattan at, 39 West 46th St. in 1950.
I think this is the first the first time I saw a middle initial used on any of his paperwork. Being of Greek heritage I would say it would be a safe bet to surmise the D stood for Demitri ? It certainly couldn't of stood for Dodiopious ? Of interest though is that he and Mr Dodi Knapp were only a month apart in age although I would bet their early lives were vastly different. George emigrated to America from Greece in 1910 and Americanised his name.
George D. Sutter passed away in July of 1962 at the age of 70 . I have also found that his son George born Dec 27 1927, passed away in March of 1993 in New York City at the age of 76. I am still hopefull that there are more descendants of the Sutters out there that may have photos of the time the Sutter family owned the Knapp Mansion from Jan 1941 - May 1950
