US Newspaper Extractions from the Northeast

I understand that we are able to assume the surname of parents and spouses when they are not listed. However, does this mean that if I have a marriage record that says Elizabeth Blanchard, daughter of Wm. B., that I can key the father's surname as Blanchard? I would think not because Blanchard could be a previous married name, but I could be wrong about that. Help Please!
