DeSoto Parish LA Unrecorded Marriages.

There are over 1,000 unrecorded marriages for DeSoto Parish, Louisiana for over 60 years, including my ancestors' 1866 marriage, in three rolls of microfilm on the FS Catalog. The Catalog also has rolls of Unrecorded Marriages for Orleans Parish. The Parish Clerk issued the marriage license on the Parish form, and a Minister of the Gospel married them. No one can explain why, including the Parish clerk and the local genealogical society. Does anyone have any idea why so many marriages were not recorded in that Parish for so long?
