This record can be found as image 15/22 in the Quebec Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967 on Ancestry.com in the records for St-Armand-Est (Baptist Church) 1851. The record appears on verso folio 14 (the back of folio 14).
In this particular record, all signatures are in the minister’s hand, which may account for the fact that Maryette Olds’ name is written as Mary Etts.
In a personal communication, Marlene Simmons informed me that a second record of this marriage appears, with original signatures, in the records of the Baptist Church serving Stanbridge, Quebec (second register for the year 1849+) on the front of folio 41.
I am not certain why the marriage appears in the records for two different Baptist Churches, one in St. Armands East and one in Stanbridge. The two records contain the same information except that, in the record from Stanbridge, Maryette Olds signed her own name while, in the St. Armands East record shown here, the minister wrote her name incorrectly as Mary Etts.
