No one is deleted ... however you can Orphan the profile by removing yourself as profile manager

Also you can remove him as a child of Zach

And it would be great if you could add some sources before you orphan him.

It looks like you accidentally duplicated a couple of profiles, that of Zachariah and his mother. First, you need to change Zachariah's LNAB (last name at birth) from his mother's maiden name of Pittman to his father's of Clevenger. Then place a request to merge Pittman-3478 into Clevenger-113. 

Then you need to merge Pittman-3477 into Pitman-98. 

By the way, I see you have some Jobes on your line. I guess that means we are related in some way.

if you're going to merge it anyway... then there's no need to change the Last Name at Birth first.

That just creates additional and unnecessary redirects under the hood -- and we really want to minimize those.
