Page 60 Rev. McLeod of the Church of England

Charles Kaller, 22, Buffalo, Chippawa, s/o Eli & Barbara, married M.E. Russell, 21, Canada, Niagara Falls, d/o Luther & Mary, witn - G.T. Hobbs of Chippawa, 29 November 1866

A church record also exists. See Vital Records of Upper Canada / Canada West, Vol. 1, Part 4, Niagara District 1820-1869, Walker and Stratford-Devai, Global Heritage Press, 2005, page 153.
Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Chippawa, Register C, Marriages 1864-1869.

Charles Keller, of the Village of Chippawa, to Margaret Eliz. Russell, of Niagara Falls. 29 Nov. 1866, Chippawa. Wit. George P. Nobbs, Peter Bartholomy, E.S. Evans and H. Keller.

The Niagara Peninsula Branch of the OGS publication C013, Holy Trinity Church (Chippawa), Reg. C., etc., Marriages 1864-1925, is essentially as recorded by Stratford-Devai, with the exception that Margaret's information appears as:

Margaret Elizabeth Russell, Niagara Falls, U.S.
DeathHe died on 7 June 1898 at Niagara Falls, Ontario. 
BurialHe was buried on 10 June 1898 at Fairview Cemetery, Niagara Falls, Ontario. 
NoteThe following death registration has a problem, but is undoubtedly the death registration of Charles Keller, husband of Margaret Elizabeth Russell:

Death reg. 021882-98 Niagara Falls, Welland County
Chas. F.D. Kellar died June 7, 1898. Age 32 yrs. Customs officer. Born Buffalo, N.Y. Episcopal. Informant George L.C. Kellar. Date of registration June 9, 1898.

All of the above information is correct, with the exception of Charles' age. It is possible that the recording clerk had a problem with the handwriting available, but another explanation might be that Charles' son George, who was the informant, misunderstood the question and gave his own age, which would have been approximately 32. This is based upon his age as given in various census records.
