The half siblings are the result of Alfred's father being duplicated.  On the profile of his mother Bridget Ryan, you will see two spouses named Thomas Heath.  They may be duplicates.  Some of the children have one Thomas for a father, some have the other.

Edit to add:  The two Thomas Heaths might not be duplicates, but two different men with similarly named parents.  Bridget Ryan seems to have a great many children with similar names.  This suggests to me that possibly you have two different families mixed together.

That is the problem Bridget is married to Alfred Thomas is her father inlaw when I added Alfred no other one came up as for Thomas I didn't do any thing  and I messaged the other person that had him I still haven't heard any thing and have messaged a few times all I can think of is to delete my tree I gave birth death and marriage details, as  for Catherine Ayre  Alfred mother it was sugggested it was wrong because the details of her name was  spelt Aire in those  days they wrote it as it sounded it wasn't the parents or couples filling in the paper work all this happened because I filled in details for Alfred and that is why I won't merg Thomas as it is wrong. The only way I know to fix is to delete my tree   Dianna
Thanks for the help I can't do any thing I will just have to leave it as it is, I now know people get upset when the wrong details are added.
