Meg's father, Barney Lancaster, met her mother, Meredith Stephens, while he was building an addition to her parents’ home. On the last day of the job, Barney asked Meredith out on a date. Two years later, they married.
In April of 1986, the Lancasters had a son, Daryl. On March 3, 1982, daughter Meg joined the family. Daryl was very protective of his little sister as they were growing up. They had a close relationship until a tragic day in 2008 when their father Barney fell from a roof to his death. This was a turning point for both Daryl and Meg. Daryl decided to become a preacher, and Meg began to question the existence of God.
When Meg was 17, she was lying on a blanket in her backyard, just staring up at the moon and the stars. She was always amazed by the vastness of the heavens and began to do research. She developed an interest in astrology, and then she found a Wiccan website. Everything she read convinced her that she wanted to be part of this circle of goddesses. She took several online courses and purchased many books on the topic. Meg celebrates Mother Earth and considers herself a peace-loving, tree-hugging hippie.
In her spare time, she does beading, making necklaces and bracelets with colorful beads. She collects small round flat rocks, which she paints designs on and adds to her jewelry. She gives them to people she likes and sells them for $3.00 each to others.
Meg has been employed at Harte Agency as the office manager and receptionist since 2011. At that time, the former receptionist, Annette Wyatt, had recently received her real estate license, leaving the position vacant. Annette trained Meg, but she didn’t have time to answer any questions or help Meg once the training was over. From that point on, Meg always felt like Annette looked down on her, but as long as her boss, Jeff Harte, was pleased with her work, Meg was happy.
Meg has been taking night classes at the University of Mississippi since 2018, majoring in business. She has hopes of becoming an agent for the Harte Agency in the future. She loves her job as the receptionist but doesn’t make the money she would like.
Meg is generally the happy-go-lucky type and seems to be well-liked. She is very punctual and likes to have her day planned out. While she gets along with her fellow workers and sometimes takes her lunch break with them, Meg has no contact with them during evenings or weekends, outside of the occasional mandatory meeting.
Between her job, her classes, and her beading, she has very little time for social gatherings. She met Chad Nixon when she rented a booth at a flea market to sell her jewelry, and he bought several items from her for his little sister. They have been dating for almost a year now.
