1870 Grimes Co. census - sections missing?

Does anyone know if sections are missing from the 1870 Grimes County census, as they are in various other states and counties? We cannot find a number of Alabama and Georgia-born families who should be in this census -- including Thomas Camp, the VERY wealthy Grimes Co. planter Ira Malcolm Camp, and Colemans. They haven't been found in Brazil/Confederados records or ship records, so presumably they were still in Grimes County where they lived in 1860 & 1880.

In the Colemans' home county, Butler Co., AL, there are entire sections missing from the 1870 census with dozens of families, as if a ledger had pages lost or pages were skipped when microfilming was done.

Does anyone know if this "missing pages/sections" occurred in Grimes County's 1870 census as well?
