McCabe family of watchmakers

Is anyone in this organisation doing any reseach on the McCabe family from Lurgan, Co Armagh who were famous for making watches and clocks?

Patrick McCabe b 1708 m. Mary Maziere and had sons: Thomas b 1739; William b 1740; John b 1745; and James b 1748. James was the most famous watchmaker and much is written about him. I am looking for information on John, my 5th great grandfather who came to Baltimore Maryland in 1774 and continued the watchmaking tradition there until his death in the Revolutionary war in 1778. John was married to Phebe Beswick.

It would be of great interest to me to see if anyone else is related to John and Phebe.
