It's interesting how records get crossed up along the way. In the marriage record book for Ainslie Street Methodist Church, later Wesley Church, the name of the first witness is poorly written. Minor Teetzel is a good transcription based on the record in the United Church Archives. The other witness in the record at the Archives is shown as Lilly Leutwein! This latter is likely correct.
 
DeathHe died on 2 October 1916 at Paris, France, at age 34. 
BurialHe was buried at Cerisy-Qailly French National Cemetery.
