Will you take a few more minutes and review the census records again.

My opinion is that Wesley Liles and Mary Jane Taylor were parents of Joseph Kincaid Liles. He was their last child and they separated. Don't know if there was an official divorce or if Mary J Taylor Liles died and then Wesley married Willie Brown mid 1880's.

See what your 2nd opinion might be and do further investigation.

Wesley married Willie Brown, in Wilson county, but there is no exact date given.

J K Liles married Mrs. Mary C Duncan 19 Mar 1902 Wilson County record says his mother was Jane Liles father not named. My original search did not find this marriage. I was looking for a Brown/Liles marriage.
