My paternal grandmother is showing two different maiden names. One is showing on a marriage certificate of her son, and the other is showing on the death certificate of my paternal grandmother. I don't know how to best determine which is true.

 On Family Search it is L1VD-CH6, and is listed as Ethel Schattinger.

I am thinking the one on her death certificate would be better, but I guess it depends

Her parents were Otto Schattinger and Ida Simcoe.  Otto died in 1907 and Ida later married someone named Vanderheide so that’s where the name came from.  Ethel’s maiden name was Schattinger.

Thank you. That makes sense. I had not thought of that. I am still learning I am a newbie.

Here is the 1910 census reference for Ethel. Her father had died and she and her mother Ida  were living with her aunt-by-marriage, Kate Simcoe.  Kate's husband was Ida's brother.

"United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MLNS-HCK : accessed 23 June 2019), Ethel M Schattinger in household of Katherine A Simcoe, Cincinnati Ward 24, Hamilton, Ohio, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 287, sheet 10B, family 203, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1982), roll 1195; FHL microfilm 1,375,208.
