Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
I just took a 'look' at both, ? ( DT7G-LJ2 ); and, Eliza Jane TURNER ( K8B9-F27 )
Short Answer: 'No', you will NOT be able to "Delete" ? ( DT7G-LJ2 ).
By way of an explanation ...
Regarding, a "Question Mark"; as, a "Name", for an individual/person ...
Here is a "Knowledge Article", in 'FamilySearch':
Why does a person's name have a question mark in Family Tree?
Where it states:
On 27 June 2016, our systems added a question mark to the name field of any person whose first and last names were blank. You can change a question mark to the correct name if you know it. Otherwise, leave it as a placeholder until you discover the correct name.
Be careful about deleting any relationships where one person is related to another person whose name is represented by a question mark. The question mark could be the result of a merge or some other action that, for now, has removed the name. In time, you or another patron may be able to supply the missing information.
You have a couple of options:
[ 1 ]
IF, Eliza Jane TURNER ( K8B9-F27 ), lived to Adulthood; and, "Married"; THEN, ...
▬ Find (or, "Created") her Spouse / Husband in, 'Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
▬ Then, "Merge"/"Combine" that Spouse / Husband, with ? ( DT7G-LJ2 ).
▬ Where, that Spouse / Husband, is the "Surviving" (Record) individual/person
▬ So that, ? ( DT7G-LJ2 ) is "Deleted" (ie. in fact, "Archived").
[ 2 ]
IF, Eliza Jane TURNER ( K8B9-F27 ), died as an Infant/child; or, "Never Married"; THEN, ...
▬ Simply "Remove"/"Detach" ? ( DT7G-LJ2 ), from their "Couple" Relationship.
