The sentences on Paul's "mother" and "relatives" were removed because a)the reference of Romans 16:13 actually greets Rufus' mother and Paul states that she "was like a mother to [him]." The mother mentioned in this verse is not Paul's mother, but Rufus', and b) the reference of relatives in Romans 16:7 and 16:11 is translated from the Greek word for "kinsmen," which refers to Paul's race as a Jew, not immediate, or even distant, family.
