Sandy, I would be really really surprised if this were the case, but it
is not out of the question for it to have happened >from time to time.

The Eastern European Jews for whom this was an issue didn't really care
much about the civil documentation unless they were planning to travel -
in the physical world.

I am wondering if the fathers name was not listed because the parents did
not record their marriage (civil records). They may have been married in
the Jewish tradition but because of the requirements of the land or the
army did not have it recorded. To put the name on the gravestone could
create problems for the deceased persons family..
