Error on 1832 Carroll-Feltenberger marriage record?

Am wondering if there could be an error on the Sept. 13, 1832 marriage record in Harrison Co. of Philip Carroll to Maria Feltenberger. My ancestor was Phillip C. Olinger. What the C. stands for is uncertain, but one person claimed it was Carroll. My Phillip married Mariah Feltenberger in 1832, but there is no record. Her name is sometimes listed as Maria or Mariah Maria. Some researchers have wondered if the Olinger could have been cut off the record. Maria's father was Jacob Feltenberger. Nobody from that line has info on her beyond her marriage date, although a couple have given her the date of my Mariah Olinger's 1879 death with no husband listed. There is no trace of another Feltenberger except for a Samuel, brother of Jacob, who first shows up in the 1850 census. I'm told there is an index marriage record for Samuel after 1817 in Harrison Co. Both Maria & Mariah were born between 1813 & 1815 if they were 2 different persons. That would eliminate Samuel as my Mariah's father. There is no trace of a Philip or Maria Carroll in any census records. There was a Philip Carroll Jr. born 1813 in Jefferson Co. Nobody seems to have info on what became of him. My Phillip was very close to his brother Henry Carroll, like they were related.
