Hi there,
I have an Elizabeth Blackett born 1890 in Bishop Auckland Co Durham - daughter of Thomas Blackett b.1850 and Margaret Ann (surname unknown) b. 1853? Possibly your Meggie Ann? Elizabeth had several brothers. Sadly I know little more about what happened to her but I do have a tree going back from Thomas, if you are interested? Regards Linda
