Hi Eric, I was just looking by chance and came across your entry. We are cousins. I am related through Margaret Cochran who married Thomas Meikle. I descend from her brother Archibald Cochran. I have been trying to find a Meikle connection for ages. A year ago or so I made contact with someone in the US who told me some information about George Meikle and Elizabeth Little going to America. He gave me the names of their children and said that he had known their daughter Catherine but he was not related to me. I am very excited to find you. I would love to share information with you if you are interested. When you say that one of the family went to New Zealand, was that George Abercrombie Meikle? I know of his marriage in Scotland and nothing else. I have been trying to find out what happened to him. My mother comes from NZ herself, her Cochran family going out there in the 1800s. I am looking forward to hearing from you. You can email me directly if you like and then I can send you what I have.
