Stopping before it gets worse.
Listed all 14 siblings of Holt -9497, all was fine.   While on siblings profile, Gaberiel Singlton (Holt-9599) profile I entered father's information, William Martin Dee Holt and found a match.  So I chose it!  Suddenly Gaberiel had very few siblings and was no longer showing up as a sibling to Elbert Claude and though it was the correct William Martin Dee Holt a number of ancestors were wrong.  So I deleted father.  Gabriel still not showing up as a sibling.  Added another profile for Gabriel, he showed as sibling. Merged two Gabriel profiles, Gabriel went missing from sibling list again.  In my search found a button that said restore to a previous time, clicked that.  Still Gabriel not showing up as a sibling. His profile is obviously there because in the note area where it is yellow, green and gray it says, "Added Gabriel Singleton Holt as sibling of Elbert Claude"  and I can click it to go to Gabriel's page but he is still not showing up in Elbert Claude's sibling list.  I REALLY REALLY WANT TO GET THIS set up, and set up right!  Any help in this matter would be GREATLY appreciated!

Why, what do you mean with 'deleted'? Delete does not exist here on WikiTree. Did you remove the link?

If you go to your contributions tab, you can see what you have done. You have created several profiles, added links, but also removed links.

My tip would be to write down the wikitree IDs of the profile and their connections between them. Then go online and edit the connections.

Please make sure you add primary sources. A lot of the sources you mention are just websites. Sources are the documents with numbers, dates and links to them. That makes it possible to see what is real, and what still needs to be done.

I’ve connected Gabriel to the same father as all his siblings so he should show up now.

There are Mentors on WikiTree to help guide you through all this stuff. It might be worth getting in touch with one: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Contact_a_Mentor

Do you think that William Martin Dee Holt-9566 is the father of the 14 siblings?  

Unfortunately, it looks like you have given a 'list' of sources, not individual sources with information from each one.  Sources should be listed with full source citation and online link, if possible, so they can be used to verify the information and to ensure that it might be the profile that someone else is looking for.

Reviewing Family Search, I found several sources for Gabe Holt-9599, so you have a profile with sourcing.

Found the 1900 census which has the parents names of Claude in it, with children matching the list in wikitree.  That census is great because it has birth month / year for everyone, as well as other information.  I added that census to the 'unknown' Holt-9598, which now has the name of William N to match the 1900 census.

Claude's profile is locked

1900 census Fannin Texas https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M3G3-8QM

1910 census Artesia, New Mexico https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MGS6-XJ9

1930 census  Artesia, Eddy, New Mexico - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XCMS-SZH

1940 Census Artesia, Eddy, New Mexico https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KMRH-FFV

Find a Grave has information on this family, not necessarily with visible gravestones for people, but there are several.

Hope this helps.

I have proposed merges for your father William Martin Dee Holt with the 'Unknown' / William Holt profile, as well as son Elbert Claude and his wife Hettie's profiles. I have added the 'sources' mentioned above to the other profiles, since those were Open for editing.  You don't need to add them to your 'locked' profile since the biographies will merge together.

Let me know if I can help you further.
