Edward Bangle (born 1829?) immigrated from England in 1850 and worked as a carriage painter in Alameda County, California.
George Chase was born in Newburyport, Massachusetts, April 17, 1841. In May,1869, they formed a house painting and contracting
partnership under the name of Bangle & Chase. The firm continued until 1878, dissolving mainly on account of an injury to
Mr. Chase's ankle. Chase was the deputy Treasurer of Alameda County in 1881-1886.
