Removal of undocumented child of William Bush-5626.

I am a descendant of William Bush-5626 and his documented son John Bush-5622. I entered the source for the relationship on William and John's profile page. Someone has entered Abraham Bush-6309 as another son of William Bush. I have done extensive research on William and have found only documentation of the relationship between William and John and no other children. It appears the only source for the relationship of William and Abraham is ancestry.com. Should I remove Abraham as the son?

Yes. It would be a good idea to let them PM know you're doing it, or at the least, leave a comment on the "deleted" relative. If there's an Ancestry link, you might want to check it to see if it bears closer scrutiny.

I added the wikitree ID in Research Notes in both profiles.

Unfortunately, there is no actual source in Abraham's profile since ancestry.com does not mean anything.  The birth location is noted as the same as his other son, so possibly there were multiple people with same name in the same area.
