Pennsylvania McDevitts

(After looking through the message boards this seems like a long shot, but here goes:)

My great-grandfather was Andrew Joseph McDevitt, born 1890, died 1974. He was born in and died in Johnstown, PA. Worked for the Johnstown police and was at one point chief of police. He was married to Meril Keating, born 1902, died 1985. They only had one child, my grandfather.

I believe his father's name was Edward McDevitt, about 1860 in Ireland. Married to Mary Brady, born about 1862. Both were born in Ireland (I believe Donegal, but not sure) and immigrated about 1881. Lived mostly in Johnstown, PA. They had five children:
Rose McDevitt, born 1889 in New Jersey
Andrew Joseph McDevitt, born 1890(my great-grandfather)in PA
Charles C. McDevitt, born 1893, died about 1959, in PA , Married Estelle Lowry and had about five children.
Mary McDevitt, born about 1896 in PA
Edward McDevitt, born about 1898 in PA

I'd love information about any of these people, or info to trace the line up further than Edward McDevitt, Sr.
