William W. TYNER
Husband:  William W. TINER / TYNER
Birth:  1823/4, definitely not 10 Jun 1818, Elbert Co., GA
Death:  10 Jun 1888, Madison Co., GA
Disposition:  buried Jones Chapel Methodist Church Cemetery, Madison Co., GA
Occupation:  farmer
Father:  Tollison TYNER
Mother:  Jane TOTMAN

If William truly was born in 1818, then he is not Tollison's son because Tollison & Jane were married in 1820 and have no children with them in the 1820 census (q.v.), but it does appear that what's wrong here is the 1818 birthyear and that Tollison & Jane are, indeed, his parents.  William is younger than his wife, Mary, so she may be the one who inflated his age.

There is no indication that their daughter, Elizabeth, had given name, Rebecca.  I suspect people were trying to turn the "R.J." in the 1850 census into Elizabeth, which is an error (R.J. is Reuben J.).  If our subjects had a son, Tom, born in 1862 (unlikely because they already had a surviving son named Thomas), he had to have died before 1870 because he is not with them in the 1870 census.  William L. TYNER is our subject's nephew, not his son (q.v.).

This enumerator has all the adults on the page as "12" in Column 14.  I don't know where he got the idea that because you were a farmer (or a member of his household) you were unemployed!
