Removal of unauthenticated child in adopted file

I adopted an unwanted profile recently of Finch-298 which states that Sarah Capron Bemis is the daughter of Ralph Finch and Emma Baldwin. I can find no evidence of her in my History of the Finch Family and there have been questions as to her authenticity on G2G and can find no links to US in my tree. I have found mentions of her in several trees in My Heritage trees. I need to merge Ralph Finch  into my tree but would like to remove her first. Can I do this?

Yes you can. It looks like you did enough research to determine that she should not be listed as his daughter so unconnecting her should be OK.  I would put an explanation of what you concluded in the biography's of all affected profiles to reduce the chance of someone connecting them later but the rest should be easy.
