General census info

This is not necessarily a Fayette County question, but:
I am searching for the parents of William N. Cook b. 1832 in GA. I have found him in the 1870 and 1860 census of Fayette Co. Anvestry.com does not come up with a hit on him in the 1850 Fayette Co. census. I am pretty sure he would have been in the county and at 18 would probably be with his parents. At least that is what I was hoping. I have searched as W. Cook, Wm Cook, William Cook, William N. Cook and searched for all the Cooks in Fayette. Any theories why I can't find him? Any suggestions? Is ancestry fairly accurate in their data? Should I look through all the Fayette Co. census pages and not rely on Ancestry. This is my first experience with them. Thanks.
