3 names, 3 profiles, 1 person

It was brought to my attention earlier this week that there are 3 profiles with 3 different last names for the same person. The profiles are as follows:

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Rieth-17

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Reith-58

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Reed-5252

I adopted the middle profile as she is part of my extended tree, but is not a direct ancestor of mine. The member who brought this to my attention is now co-manager as she does descend from them. I haven't done any work on it, but it's obvious that all 3 represent the same person. 

Our question would be which is correct? This family is kind of frustrating because I know of at least four different spellings on the last name and these are three of them. If anyone wants to try and sort this out, it would be for the better of Wikitree.

Thanks,

KZ

Hard to say when none of them has sources other than family trees. Any documents of any kind to be found?

To be honest I never got around to looking at this specific person as they aren't a direct ancestor. I wanted to help out this newer member who brought it to my attention, but figured it would be best to ask the community.

Thank You for your response,

KZ
I tagged him (Johann Anspach) a Palatine Migrant, so maybe someone will look at it.
