Ruehle is pronounced "really".

Minnie's death record lists her age at death as 50 years, 4 months, and 8 days. This would establish her birth date as September 8, 1878 which conflicts with her age of 19 listed on the record of her marriage to Edmund Martyn in 1894. If the death record is accurate, Minnie was only 16 at the time of their marriage.
