The proper brother of Edward Ancell is Henry Clay Ancell

This family may need to be protected to have accurate data entered.

If you're looking to remove one of the brother's, I only know of one way to do this... via the parents.

Within each parent's profile (one at a time of course), select the edit option at the top, then scroll down to the list of children under the "Edit Family" category, then just below the list of children's names is an "add/remove child" option and you should be able to figure out the rest from there.

For more information, you can always check out the following WikiTree Help page on Editing Family Relationships.

I hope I had explained this okay via text... :-)

Good Luck!
