Trying To Trace My Great Grandfather - a Memory of Glenochil Village.

My great grandfather, Alexander Young, was a labourer residence Glenochil. He married Ann S Drysdale of Alva in 1887, his father is listed as Alexander Brown, Ploughman, deceased. I am trying to find out if they both worked on a farm in Glenochil. I keep getting heaps of info on HM Prisons but not very much on previous history on that area, maybe someone may be able to shed some light on my problem. Thanks
