The Find-A-Grave source for Otto Scherp at the profile of Margaretha Krebs is not mistake: it is there purposely, as the Find-A-Grave profile for Otto Scherp indicates his second wife as being Margaretha Krebs and gives their date of marriage. Margaretha Krebs does not have a Find-A-Grave profile of her own.
