No. I've been trying to force a square peg into a round hole!
Scotland's People database has a David Ryburn, born 30 Sep 1821, in Stewarton, Ayrshire, to a John Ryburn and Agnes Stewart. Agnes was born in Stewarton in 1794 -- this accords with her age of 85 in the 1880 US census. Also a David Ryburn married a Margaret Cochran in Stewarton on 1 Apr 1851.
This seems a more likely Scottish conection -- there were not many David Ryburns around at that time. The 1851 Scottish census confirms a David Ryburn of about the right age in Stewarton, but a closer look may be worthwhile. He may or may not have been married on the census date - don't know.
