John Baine (1713-1790) worked first with Alexander Wilson (whose foundry later bore the name "Glasgow Letter Foundry).
He managed a (first) Dublin branch of the Wilson foundry from 1747 until 1749. I presume that the branch closed at this point, but I am uncertain (and Reed doesn't say); Wilson later opened a Dublin branch again.
The grandson was also John Baine. Neither Reed nor Silver give his date of birth. Reed says he died 1799, but Silver disputes this. The Philadelphia foundry wrapped up sometime around 1799, when John Baine (grandson) sold Binny & Ronaldson "three hundred dollars worth of tools" (Silver, 8)
