I am developing this profile: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sanderson-961 and need to replace the existing mother http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Scott-951 with the correct gendered mother. The orphaned profile will not allow me to adopt or edit the profile.

The people have been dead for over 100 years.
Thanks for your help

what error do you get when you try to adopt the profile?
A private profile can't be adopted, Dennis.

I see. Then perhaps it would be better to remove the link to adopt, in such cases? (sorry, this is straying off topic, from the original question now)

The "mother" currently connected to Sanderson-961 is Ralph Scott-951, born in the 1890s.  Looks like he needs to be detached as spouse of http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Sanderson-439 (born 1714) and detached as "mother" of the children.

Not sure how that all happened, but it looks like Scott-951 is the problem.
