Baby Howell Birth Mystery

Classification: Query
My Great Grandmother (Doris Delight). We always had her maiden name as Taylor. I never had a copy of her birth record until this week. I ordered from Delaware County Health Department. It shows her DOB as 08-07-1907 with her mother listed as Etta Howell. No father is listed and is listed as "legitimate = No". What does this mean? Also it shows that it was entered in 1932. What would have happened to cause her birth record to be entered 25 years after she was born? I have never seen anything like this.

I also ordered a copy of her social security application from 1942 and she lists her dad as unknown as well.

Has anyone ever encountered this type of thing? i have no idea where to go now...except that I know that the person I had listed as her Father (Charles F. Taylor) was actually her stepfather whom Etta married in 1914 in Randolph county.

Any help or insight would be appreciated.
