How to remove siblings?

I have accidentally put the same sibligs on Catherine's profile.  I don't think they are actual duplicate profiles, I just put them on her profile more than once. I now see there are surnames of Fraser and Frazier siblings.  I think the Fraziers are correct. Nope, the frasier files are different.  Yes, I created the profiles I used by GEDCOM.  I compared them then but since the names were different did not merge them.  Now I have both families.  If I removed the incorrect siblings from the parents (have no idea how) and just leave the correct ones am I messing up someone else's work?

Look at Frazier-1719 vs Fraser-434.  They have a few similarities but many differences.  

I give up! There are other's with the same problems.  I have tried to make sure I match the birthdate because families name their kids the same  Then there are changes in surnames.  My family spells their name Pierpoin Pierpoint Perepont etc. I'm not sure bur maybe I'm looking for John Pierpont married to Nancy Ann instead of Carherine. Sorry if that is the case. I will look into that.

Bring up each sibling one at a time and disconnect their parents. There are actually duplicate profiles. (Perhaps you created them instead of connecting to existing ones?) If they represent the same people, they will need to be merged - highest number into lowest. Once those are straight, add back the correct parents.

But first, consult and figure out whether they're going to be Fraser, Frasier or Frazier.

Actually, there are duplicates of both parents as well, partly cross-married.  Merge those up before dealing with the children.

This is horrible.

Presumably the siblings are children of the same parents.

But the mother shown here is born 1 jan 1735 and the daughter was born 1735.

something is seriously wrong.
