1940 Unknown Boarding House Owners

Once again I could use some ID help with the following folks who were listed in the 1940 Census as having a boarding house. Thank you.

Karl Angerstein, 59, widower owned a boarding house.

Gus and Frieda Dasener ran a boarding house on Minisink Ford-Barryville Road.

Mimie Rupp, 63, widowed, ran a boarding house also on Minisink Ford-Barryville Road.

Walter and Barbara Kramer, also on on Minisink Ford-Barryville Road.

Bertha Sullivan, summer and hunting season lodgers.

    Could it be Umbreit’s? I’m 64, and we used to go there with my grandparents in the early 60’s. I believe it was owned by a German family. I’ve been trying to find archival photos on line, to no avail.

    do, however, have photos of my 4-year-old self in Lederhosen, hugging their deer lawn ornament. Good times!

    My Uncle and Aunt (Bernard, Mildred Brennan) had a boarding house in that area.It sounds like where you are describing. I used to visit my cousins there when I was young, late 40s.

    Trying to see if anyone has any info on a summer boarding house in Shohola.

    I’m 68 now and we use to go there for the summer in the late ’50s early 60s. Run by Germans?; had a large bell outside they would ring for meal times and when you arrived for your stay and left.

    If memory serves me, we went over the bridge from RT 97 in Barryville, then it was a few miles up the road from there. Remember the small Catholic church which is still there? Any info would help to bring back memories, pictures, location etc.

    Remember the house was fairly large up on a large hill with quite a view, and few trees around the immediate property Thanks

    I knew Karl when I worked at Woodland Cottages in 1954. He was in his 70’s and was the handyman there.

    He did live on Corkscrew Road as I had gone to his house when he needed to get some tools. He drove a black 1940 Plymouth which he probably had for a long time.

    He was a very patient man and had me work with him at times. I remember him showing me how to mix cement as we fixed the steps going down to the pool.

    Angerstein’s house was on Corkscrew Road. My great aunt had a house along his driveway up the hill. The driveway to his home is now private and was recently up for sale from a more recent owner. It was a bed and breakfast but never took off.

    My great aunt also worked at the Maple Grove Farm back in the day which was located just down the road. Her name was Kathe Downing.

    Angersteins lived at 38 Corkscrew Rd. in Barryville. It is now the Mt. Pleasant House.

    I knew Karl Angerstein when he was an older retiree. He was working part time for Herman and Mathilde Protz at Woodland Cottages in the early 1950s. Not sure where his former boarding house was, possibly somewhere on the Barryville/Yulan Road (closer to Barryville), but again, unsure.
