Chicago Vise & Tool Company

Chicago, IL - Incorporated 1869.  Here is an article on the new company from The Colorado Gazetteer of 1871 (also posted below in Image 2).  An iteresting note from this article is that the gentlemen whom established the company are formerly with Peter Wright. 

Image 3 below, shows an advertisement from the 9/9/1868 Quad-City Times of Davenport, IA.  It appears that during this time, the company's proprietor was T. Raybould & Co.  This same advertisement is present in this newspaper until July of 1869.

Here are the Articles of Incorporation from 1869 noting the companies founding on 3/26/1869 with the following principals: George W. Scott, Thomas W. Jones and Thomas Raybould.

The advertisement below in image 1, again from the above referenced Gazetteer, notes Z. S. Mastin and W. P. L. Russell as proprietors.

It appears the company was sued ca. 1874 and seems to disappear around that time.
