If it has been proven that some children are on the incorrect profiles of parents, shouldn't you just remove them?

I'm referring to some extra children that were put on as children of Mary Burr-40 and Thomas Howes, Sr. Howes-67.  Several of us have been working on them for over a week and it is mostly straightened out, but these people only had 3 sons (Joseph, Thomas, Jr., Jeremiah), well known, repeatedly referred to in books, NEHGS, etc. I don't understand why they can't be removed from these parents. It isn't as if they'll be lost.  They just won't have parents that can as yet be found. Darlene Scott Kerr

Why not remove them?  That is the beauty of an open source tree.

Post something on both profiles about removing the parents, so they dont get reattached, and then remove them.
