Reader Geolover commented:
"The couple relationships that you believed you deleted for Benjamin b. 1791 are still there because at least one person is in the system as child of each of the relationships. Using the small arrow at lower left of each couple box you can see the child(ren) in the system for each couple.
"You must research the actual parentage for each child before proceeding to remove the child from the couple. The child may be assigned to correct father or to correct mother. You need the Person ID number (PID) for each correct parent of each child. When you go to the child-parent relationship screen you can remove biological relationship for wrong parent and have the option to change parent to correct parent.
"Here is where it gets sticky. There are probably duplicated individuals listed as children of Seaver relatives. The listed child(ren) of wrong parents under Benjamin Seaver b. 1791 may be composites of more than one actual person. There may be multiple wrong vital dates/places assigned to any individual child.
Here's the screens for Benjamin Seaver (1791-1825) (three screens shown):
In the screen above, you can see the Discussion section. On 2 June 2011, I added this comment in the Discussion section:
"There are 10 children listed for Benjamin Seaver (1791-1825) and Abigail Gates (1797-1869), who married in 1817.
The first six, born between 1797 and 1812, are the children of Benjamin Seaver (1757-1816) and Martha Whitney (1764-1832), the parents of Benjamin Seaver (1791-1825). The last four - Abigail, Lucinda, Isaac and Benjamin are rightly in the family of Benjamin Seaver and Abigail Gates. Records for all of these births are in the Westminster MA Vital Records book and in the Town Records book. How does something like this get fixed?"
So I added this as a Comment today:
"I fixed this situation by deleting the erroneous relationships and managed to get Benjamin Seaver (1757-1816) as father of benjamin Seaver (1791-1825). I will be adding source records as time permits."
All of the Changes I made for Benjamin Seaver are in his "Person Changes" log. There are over 50 Changes performed to get to where I am for Benjamin Seaver (1791-1825):
