      While looking for more information about Elizabeth Stanford Sackett
      (1898-2002), wife of Rear Admiral Earl LeRoy Sackett (1897-1970), I came
      across an entry in Army-Navy-Air Force Register and Defense Times, vol. 72:

      SACKETT--At Norfolk, Va., August 11, 1922, to Ensign Earl LeRoy Sackett,
      U. S. Navy, and Mrs. Sackett a daughter Maidie Mason; granddaughter of
      Captain H. R. Stanford, C. E. C, U. S. Navy and Mrs. Stanford.

      In Washington Social Register, December 1921, p. 144: Stanford Miss
      Elizabeth L (Homer R) . . . Married Jun 1 Sackett Mr Earl LeRoy-USN . .
      . at Hampton Roads Va.
      Stanford, Captain & Mrs Homer R (Maidie Mason) USN. An.Cvc.Ann.Uvp.Wash'88
      Stanford, Mr. Carrington M*--at SanFran . . .
      Ensign& Mrs E LeRoy Sackett (Elizabeth L Stanford) USN
      All of the preceding three lines are indicated as being at Phone No
      1000, Naval Operating Base, Norfolk, VA

      This confirms that Stanford was her maiden name, not a middle name.

      In Notable Southern Families, vol. 2, p. 186, is a discussion of the
      family of John Houston and Sarah Todd. Rather deep in that section it
      mentions that "Maria (sic) B. Mason above, married ---------- Stanford
      of U.S. Navy and has two children: Eliza Stanford Sackett and Carrington
      Stanford.
