Dryburgh Family from Fife

I just recently found that my 4th Great Grandfather Robert Marshall was living with a Ann Dryburgh and her daughter Helen, in the 1851 Census for Dysart Fife. He was listed as boarder. Have you heard of this person Ann Dryburgh? I am having a hard time finding out information on Robert Marshall. I can't figure out why he lived as a boarder there. There may have been some connection that I am not seeing. He was 44 and she was 28. You can email me at montana_dreams@bresnan.net It maybe a long shot but I thought I would ask.

Thanks/

Walter Watt Dryburgh

Thanks for this picture. Her son, Walter Watt Dryburgh, was married to my great-great-grandfather's sister, Jane Morgan. Many of the Morgans and Dryburghs are buried in Churchill.
