Stephen Mack didn't have a middle name. The Walter Covey book (and some other publications) say "Stephen Andrew" Mack was the founder of Detroit Michigan, and a prominent banker in Michigan. But actually that is an error. Andrew Mack and Stephen Mack were two separate people. Andrew Mack was a mayor of Detroit and was born in 1780 (his grave: Stephen Mack was one of the founders of Detroit and also of Pontiac, Michigan, and was born in 1766 (his grave: Stephen actually didn't have a middle name, but the error "Stephen Andrew" has often been repeated. Stephen Mack and Andrew Mack were no relation to each other.
