"You mention "detaching" the non-ancestor. Is that the way I should proceed."

Yes

"There aRE NO OTHER TIES TO ME TREE THAT I WOULD WANT TO KEEP"

I'm not sure I know what that means.

"If I jest detach, would those people still remain in my database?"

No, detaching just disconnects relationships. It does not delete people.

"Not sure how else to describe what I want to do. But I want to delete person X, his wife, and all of x's ancestors."

See the step by step directions in my post above. (PS. I suggest making a backup copy of your file before you delete anthing.)
