Could there be such a mistake in the records from the National Archives. I can't say yes or no for caertain, but I will say this. I had to accompany my mom to pick up the birth cert of on of my sisters recently and she was talking with the town clerk about why she prefers to get a copy of the hard copy for various records over transcriptions. And that's because she's run into cases where the transcription and the hard copy don't match because the person transcribing either didn't care enough to pay attention to the fact that they were making mistakes when transcribing or they couldn't read the handwritting on the hard copy very well. Could be a case of when the records went to the National Archives something wasn't transcribed properly.
