So if I "remove" this device can I log in as anyone then on the ipad?  In other words can it be sold without giving the new owner any details?

It has a new operating system and I havnt logged in yet.

Yes, you can.
If you'll reset tablet to factory default settings and update new OS, then anyone can authorize it on hes new account.
I did it many times and had no problem at all.
You'll get problem only if tablet/phone is locked because of report of lost or stolen.

I know the original owner and I ha e access to their iCloud and Apple ID a account

The user name and password refuse to be accepted on the iPad even though I can log in on the www

It's not listed under Devices for the Apple ID

In such case, it is hardware error.

I am handling a similar case like yours. An iPad Mini 2 with water damage shows nothing on screen but when connect to iTunes in Windows PC, it shows a pattern of Apple ID but the credential is not accepted. The iPad Mini 2 is not in the device list in Find my iPhone also.

I will update you when I solved the problem.
