Welcome Jerry!  We don't (can't) delete profiles on WikiTree.  You can connect them to the correct parents though.  On each child's Edit tab, on the right hand side, there is a link to remove/replace father, and one for the mother as well.  Make a note of the WikiTree ID of the correct parent, and drop it into the ID field of the remove/replace parent screen.  Then scroll to the very bottom and click the appropriate button to complete the operation.

Make sure that before you add or remove children or parents that you scroll to the bottom to see if any boxes are checked by default, which could be adding incorrect relationships.
Thanks for the star Rubén!
