What is this source "S-1209" in a profile? I didn't put it there and it's unidentified!

That’s something that came in with your Gedcom.

It's code created when you imported your GEDCom file.  Looks like it might have been the citation for the marriage record, and it got disconnected from its link as you cleaned up the GEDCom bio.

I don't see a source "S-1209", but there is a source "S-1809". Is that what you are asking about? Source "S-1809" is a source contained in the GEDCOM upload. Specifically it is "Pioneer Families of Washington County, Virginia". I had to look on his wife's profile to find this information. I don't think William is shown in that source, and maybe why it was unidentified. "S-1809" should probably be removed from William's profile.

Typically, those are "span" tags, which will link to different portions of the text (like a "ref" tag). As Herbert has noted, you deleted the text that it previously referenced.
