Spelling

Wondering if anyone can explain why my stepfather (deceased 2002) always wrote his mother's maiden name as Dorothy May SIMOND,sans the s?
Dorothy was of African American decent,living when my father was born in Philadelphia,PA.She married William YANCEY.
I found a SSDI record of a Dorothy YANCEY which gave the dates 27 Dec 1901-Aug 1981,which I'm sure is her.That helps me with the YANCEY part.BUT......
should I be looking for the surname SIMONDS instead to trace her parentage?
Thanks for reading my query!
