Mary E. Bryam b 1844 Indiana

I'm looking for information about the ancestors of Mary Elizabeth Byrum, born about 1844 in Switzerland county, Indiana. She married Jackson Richard Keffer in 1840 in Switzerland county, Indiana.

I've found two records that appear to be her family, as location, names, and dates fit. The 1850 census for Switzerland county, IN has one Byram:
John Byram, 33, M, Farmer, b New Jersey
Elizabeth, (age not clear), F, b Indiana
Sarah, 8, F, b Indiana
Mary E., 6, F, b Indiana
Griffith, 4, M, b Indiana
Manuel N, 2, M, b Indiana
Louisa Lock, 21 or 31 (?), F, b Indiana

I also found a marriage record:
John Byram Jr. married Elizabeth Dickason, 11/26/1839 in Switzerland county, Indiana.

These records seem to "fit," but I still need to fit this group into a larger family group and any help will be most appreciated. This is my husband's family and I have info on Mary Elizabeth's descendents.

Thanks for any help.
