I checked the changes history and it looks like there was a merge done a year or so ago where the LNAB on the merged away profile was Smith.  The current last name must have been Smith too and it was carried over during the merge. I don't see any reason not to remove it, unless there's a source saying he used his mother's maiden name as his last name during his life.
