I’m hoping you can give me some advice on sorting out some unclaimed property. I found out that Oklahoma Unclaimed Property is holding 4 accounts under my name that I wasn’t aware of. They are all Mineral Interests with varying amounts from $12 to $1500 at 2N 20E Sec17 in Beaver Co, OK. My brothers also have some unclaimed accounts but they haven’t looked into them yet. I’ve been assigned a contact person in the Unclaimed Property Division and have been told they need a Mineral Deed or a statement with the current property owners’ name. I haven’t been able to find a deed- I have looked through my files, my brother (executor of our father’s will) has looked through his and I’ve checked with OK County Records, who didn’t have a deed on file but did have a Proof of Death and Heirship for my dad and one for his mother. But when I submitted those documents, the unclaimed office now says they will not accept anything but a Mineral Deed in either my name, my dad’s name or my grandmother’s name. I also have a Division Order from Unit Petroleum Co. that lists me as Owner but they will not accept that either. I’ve hit a wall with this and now I’m asking you, The Forum. Any suggestions on where I might find that deed?
Thank you, Desiree Peat
