Eli Martin WYATT
Martha KEELING

Birth according to censuses:  1805/06, KY, or 1809/10, TN  {1850: 44, KY; 1860: 50, TN}
Death:  aft. 1860 
Father:  Thomas William WYATT
Mother:  Mary NEEDHAM

In the 1880 Census, sons Edward and James both give their father's birthplace as KY.

Marriage:  25 Sep 1828, Todd Co., KY
Wife:  Martha KEELING
Birth:  1804/5, TN
Death:  1850-60, presumably in Morgan Co., IL
Father:  Edmund KEELING
Mother:  Nancy FRANCIS
Children born in Morgan Co., IL (data in braces are {year: age, birthplace} from the censuses):
  1.  Lucy WYATT, b. 1828/9  {1850: 21, IL}
  2.  William WYATT, b. 1831/2  {1850: 18, IL}
  3.  Elizabeth WYATT , b. 1832/3  {1850: 17, IL}
  4.  Mary WYATT, b. 1834/5  {1850: 15, IL; 1860: 25, IL}
  5.  Edward M. WYATT, b. 10 Jan 1837  {1850: 14, IL; 1860: 23, IL; 1880: 43, IL}
  6.  John WYATT, b. 1837/38  {1850: 12, IL} or 1839/40 {1860: 20, IL}
  7.  Wesley Martin WYATT, b. 1840  {1850: 10, IL; 1860: 19, IL}
  8.  Martha Ellen WYATT, b. 1840  {1850: 10, IL; 1860: 19, IL}
  9.  James L. WYATT, b. 1841/2 {1850: 8, IL} or 1 Jul 1844 or 1845/6 {1860: 14, IL}
10.  Minerva WYATT, b. 1843/44 {1850: 6, IL} or 1846/7 {1860: 13, IL}
11.  Eliza WYATT, b. 1847/8  {1850: 2, IL; 1860: 12, IL}

There are several discrepancies between the names and ages of the children as given in the censuses.  I guess if anyone needs a lesson in the unreliability of census data, this family is a good example.
