The court does not allow a minor child to arbitrarily change residency from one custodial parent to another unless there is a court order allowing the action. The parent wishing to take custody of the child must file a petition for such in the appropriate state court in the city or county where they or in some cases the child resides.

If you died would your son be taken away from his step father and step brother and returned to his biological father seeing as legally he is not my husband's baby or does marriage bring rights?

Marriage by itself does not bring custody rights to non-biological children. Where the children go when the biological mother dies depends on who has custody, whether the non-biological father has adopted the child, whether the biological father wants the child, and on the laws of the state where all of this is happening.
