About Landine Manigault
Appears that Landine and Peter divorced at some point. Their son's wedding notice shows them living in different cities. It looks like Landine ended up with Charles Peckham (obit below)
Charles S. Peckham, a retired political consultant, died of a brain tumor Friday at his home in Stonington, Conn. He was 56 years old. In 1975 and 1976, Mr. Peckham was director of field operations for the Republican National Committee. He was a consultant to Mayor John V. Lindsay and President Ronald Reagan. After he left politics, Mr. Peckham founded the American Musical Theater in New London, Conn., in 1984.
Mr. Peckham was born in Manhattan and graduated from George Washington University. With him when he died was his longtime companion, Landine Manigault. He is survived by his brother, Rufus, of Washington.

SARATOGA SPRINGS -- With every passing year, the Sanford Stakes brings an even greater swell of memories for Landine Sanford Manigault.
Manigault, the great-granddaughter of Stephen Sanford, presented the winner's trophy Sunday at the 97th running of the race named in the family patriarch's honor, and said she was thrilled to return to the track that has played such a central role in the history of perhaps Amsterdam's most notable family
"I used to come here for years with my grandfather and my uncle, Laddie Sanford, almost all my life," said Manigault.
She was at the Spa again Sunday, representing the family for the race that was first run in 1913, the year of Stephen Sanford's death, and has been a fixture of the Saratoga season every year since, save for a one-year hiatus in 2005. The Sanford family, which raced thoroughbreds under the colors of Hurricana Farm, first brought horses to Saratoga in 1880 and, from its home base in Amsterdam, remained one of the venerable track's most prominent names for generations.
Even now, 98 year's after Sanford's death, it's a connection that Manigault and the rest of her family are proud to keep alive.
