Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1918 Marriage Certificate for Lyle L. Carringer and Emily K. Auble

Today's Treasure Chest document is the 1918 marriage certificate of Lyle L. Carringer and Emily K. Auble in San Diego, California:

The transcription of this church document is (handwritten text in italics):

This certifies that  Lyle L. Carringer
and    Emily K. Auble      were by me
Joined in the Bonds of Holy Wedlock
at San Diego, California, this   19    day of   June    19 18
Witnesses of the ceremony:           W.E. Crabtree Minister
Mrs. D.A. Carringer                       Central Christian Church
Mrs. Georgia Auble                        San Diego, Cal.

The source citation for this church marriage certificate is:

Lyle L. Carringer and Emily K. Auble marriage, 19 June 1918, issued by Central Christian Church, San Diego, California. Marriage certificate supplied by Betty (Carringer) Seaver; held in 2018 by Randall J. Seaver ([address for private use], Chula Vista, Calif.).

Lyle L. Carringer (1891-1976) and Emily K. (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977) are my maternal grandparents, and received this certificate after their wedding on 19 June 1918.  At the time of the wedding, Lyle at age 26 had just joined the United States Marine Corps, and Emily at age 18 had attended San Diego High School, but had dropped out to support her widowed mother.

The Central Christian Church was located at the southeast corner of 9th Avenue and F Street in downtown San Diego, according to the `1920 San Diego City Directory.  William E. Crabtree was the pastor.  I doubt that there are marriage registers for this church still available - perhaps the San Diego City Library or the San Diego Historical Society have records from this church.
