Thanks for the note. I don't have a definative answer, it could just be a transcription error. However it has been my understanding that there was often a delay in recording documents, and many early Texas marriages were also unofficial until the couple was "properly married" by a Catholic priest, who weren't always readily available.
I have also read that similar problems occured in many of the U.S. territories, hence the need for Justice of the Peace petitions, and marriage bonds.
