Death certificate records can be very inaccurate as people are grieving.
It is not just that people are grieving or the chaos of the moment. The funeral home filled out the information and in the case of my own mother which was just two years ago some of the papers said I was her brother. My brother made the arrangements and all I can guess is he said my brother ... and the person at the funeral home was not clear and instead made me my mother's brother. Hopefully some genealogist a hundred years from now reading that will get a laugh.
No record is perfect and especially when there is an intermediary involved.
