Your suggestion is possible, but I do not
think it is likely. I admit, I haven't had the
time to research the relevant laws yet, but the
staff at the Mass. Division of Vital Records all
seemed to agree that permission in such a case
was necessary from the governor, and that this is
what was meant.
Also, if permission was needed from his
superior officer, which is certainly possible,
knowing the military, that should have been
recorded in military records. It is not likely
that Massachusetts would have felt it necessary
to keep track of military regulations, or to note
that their requirements had been fulfilled.
Or at least, that's my interpretation.
