Help Solve These Mysteries

As I come across individuals or families that needs special attention I'm going to start listing them here with as much available information as I can find. As this page is bound to be very large, I'll attempt to keep the arrangement as compact as possible. At least two categories jump to mind right away, one being those of individuals that are missing parents or are attached to the wrong parents, and two being those families that seem to disappear for a census or two and then, hopefully, reemerge.

He is presumed dead by the time of the 1870 census as he is not located anywhere.

He cannot be the son of Wiley Joshua ECHOLS & Nancy Melinda BROWN so who are his parents?
