Krause or Hauser as LNAB?

I was reviewing MatchBot-proposed merges and found this pair... they're both orphans, so they could be merged, but into which name?

Any Krause or Hauser researchers out there who could take a look?

After looking at these two profiles, I would suggest that there is no basis for merging them.

The husbands have different names, with similar marriage dates, thus the children would be born in the same time range.

The source has no value. "First-hand knowledge" of events taking place more than 200 years ago is not possible.

More research is needed before deciding to merge these profiles.

thanks! I'll set them as unmerged match - frequently in colonial America a widow/widower would marry their late spouse's sibling. I thought that might be the case here.
