The Mystery of Sarah Jane Taylor: Brumet Family Nearby, 1850 Census

I decided to go page by page with the District 51, Livingston County, Missouri Census of 1850 to see if any Brumets were neighbors.  Eighteen households before James Taylor and Mary Bromett appear household #394 (entry 16), William Brumet and his wife Sarah.  Could they be Sarah Jane Taylor’s maternal grandparents?

William Brumet, his wife Sarah, and their children Susan, Henry, James, William, Elijah, John, and Thomas. Mary Ann Bromett (or Mary Ann
William Brumet, his wife Sarah, and their children Susan, Henry, James, William, Elijah, John, and Thomas. Mary Ann Bromett (or Mary Ann “Polly” Brumet, this family has multiple spellings) lives 18 households away with her husband James Taylor. Polly Ann Bromett is 19 years old at this time. Could there be a connection?

I also found this record of marriage for William to Sarah “Sally” Evans in Chariton County, Missouri 1827.  Maybe Mary Ann Bromett named her daughter Sarah Jane Taylor after grandmother Sarah Evans?

William Brummit married Sarah
William Brummit married Sarah “Sally” Evans July 1827. Sarah Evans would have been about 18 years old at this time and about 22 when Mary Ann was born in 1831. Could She be Mary Ann Bromett’s mother?
