Can you add the WikiTree ID of the person in the question?
She was Perrin-14.  I seem to have unintentionally created a new ID of Perrin-1727.
Is there a simple way to remove/delete an entire entry and then replace it?
Okay: have now fixed the problem by removing Dyer-10317 as a son of Perrin-1727.

There isn't a way to delete.  You need to merge.  Usually it's higher number into lower number.  Oh well. I have certainly made the same mistake of creating a duplicate profile, especially when starting out.  Glad you sorted your problem.  And, welcome to WikiTree!
