I was just wondering where all the artwork of Mr. Chase can be seen? Is all the artwork together in place?

From 1968 until 1974 I was a student at st. Joseph High School Seminary and St Patrick College Seminary. Mr Chase was quiet but had an aura of dignity about him. While I missed the class session where Mr Chase told his story, I heard about it from classmates.

I was a student from 1968 to 1972 where John was the head Custodian. I always found him to be friendly and easy to talk with during this time. He was a great example that someone can indeed change for the best in life Rest in Peace, John.

My dads godfather was Ray Mooney who was a bookie in the Mission District, and had the Fireside Club on 16th, and Tower Cigar on Twenty Second. My father and godfather would have dinner at Anthony "Soap" Marino's house. Anthony also had ties with Barker-Karpis Gang. It is reported in the F.B.I files that he was responsible for the kidnapping of "Bemer". I'm looking for more information on Ray Mooney. Ray had ties Bones Renner, who owned the Cal-Neva in Tahoe, and that Anthony "Soap" Marino was also part owner. This is in 1955, after Marino got out for Harboring a Fugitive. Baby Face Nelsen. I'm looking for info on Ray Mooney.

I'm very interested in knowing where John Paul Chase is connected to my Chase ancestors. I was informed that everyone with the Chase surname is related, and directly descended from William Chase (1595-1659), the first American ancestor of the line. My great-great-grandmother was Martha Jane Chase, daughter of Justus Chase. Can you provide a family tree? Thanks.

My Dad, same name as mine, lived in Sausalito ,was a sales exec who had a need for high end liquor in entertaining buyers of his paper cups. Hev worked for Lily-Tulip Cup company. He knew John and Jimmie and used them when he lived in Sausalito. I was told that the Valhalla was the club but it might have been the Oasis. When Dad was called back to NYC one saturday morning 2 FBI men came to his office and said would he like to talk to them there or at Headquarters? Dad went with them downtown. They sat him down and asked him would he like a glass of water? They then produced a greasy tumbler. They wanted his prints! He then told them that paper cups were the way to go not greasy glasses. Did Dad know Lester? He said he knew James Emison and John. They promised Dad they would get Jimmie and when they did they would let Dad know which they did. For years I remember Dad calling John in Alcatraz at Xmas. I think Lester was a real Sob but I have no knowledge of it personally. My Daughter lived in Sausalito and was married thereseven years ago. My Dad died in !980.I felt very close to him that weekend Those FBI men had families. this story was related to me the night I saw Bonnie and Clyde and told my Dad what I had seen at the movies. he told me what he had seen in his life. Best to you Ed Scully

John, Just saw your web site and thought that I'd drop you a quick note. I knew Johnny...... grew up down the street from St. Joseph college and use to see John walking almost daily. Never knew his story until one night in September of 1973. Father Joe Clark and John showed up on my parents door step. Turns out that Father Clark had married my dad and his first wife. it was one interesting conversation that night. If you'd like to talk please give me a buzz..... I saw on your guest list that Johnny's niece had got ahold of you.... Do you know how I can contact her?

John Chase was a second cousin and I remember the stories my mother told us of his visits to Omaha NE. I also found an interesting story of him in Alcatraz " The gangster years. Anna LaVelle was my Grandfater's sister
