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.
MarriageShe married Thomas Clark on 23 July 1921 at Galt.

She went by Emma and married William Himes of Galt. They had a son that they named Emerson who died in the Second World War.
