WikiTree profile: Francis Penn
in Genealogy Help by Betty Maddox G2G Rookie (250 points)
Hello Betty.

At this point Francis is the wife of Albert's father, but Francis is not Albert's mother.
Francis is Albert's grandmother. His mother is Johanna "Hanna" Jones 1794-1879. Francis is John Clark's mother. I tried more than once to change it, but it would not do so.

There are two editions to John Clark's profile needed:

1. Click on the link "[add/remove spouse]" at the right hand side column below the name of  Francis Louisa (Jones) Penn. Go to the bottom of the emerging page, tick Francis Louisa and click on "REMOVE SPOUSE OF JOHN CLARK BURTON".

2. Go back to John Clark's profile in edit mode. Click on "[add mother]". In the emerging page enter Francis ID (Jones-69464) in A.) and click "GO".

After completing those two editions Francis will be John Clark's mother instead of his wife.

Please post any issue you might find in completing the editions.

You can click the edit tab for Albert. Then on the right side, there are links, "add/remove ... (father, mother, children, spouse)"

click on those and follow the steps as neccessary.
