I dont feel qualified to do much more on wiki tree I dont understand how to do so many things. For instance there was a place that said I had not entered the ancestry ID. I tried to find it but could not understand where to go. Can anybody take over management of a tree?

Since you are the profile manager of all the profiles you created, you can add additional profile managers as you best see fit. 

I'm managing too many profiles as is, but perhaps you can ask a G2G question asking for help from someone who is doing Clayton family research. 

But you don't need an ancestry.com id to get source data from familysearch.org or findagrave.com.  You can also copy and paste the census information I posted onto Curtis James Clayton's profile if you know how to do so. 

Just to make it a bit easier, I went ahead and added what initial sources I could find for Curtis Clayton's profile - see if that helps give you an idea of how to start. You'll still need to adjust his birth date, birth place, death date, and death place, but it's a start.
