illegal written under father's name on death records

In a man's 1919 death record the father's name is written illegal. He was born 1865. So I used the mother's name listed to look in the 1870 census and found her but he isn't listed at all. So I'm thinking that she wasn't really his mother even though the death certificate says so. What does illegal mean in regards to the father's name?
