My ancestors from my Mothers, paternal & maternal side came into West Virginia back in the middle 1600’s coming down through the Cumberland and Appalachian Mountains as explorers and mappers.
Then in the late 1600’s to early 1700’s they started the track back to what is now called West Virginia. Some Tomahawked there land boundaries in the counties we know as of today as Tyler, Doddridge, Wetzel, Kanawha, Monongalia, Harrison, Lewis,.
Now I find Myself fighting to keep our Ancestral Mineral Rights and Service Rights. First it was StatOil , then EQT and now we have Antero. My mom had 7 kids 5 Sons and 2 daughters. All but 4 of us have received Antero Contracts and the reasoning behind is due to the fact Antero has ownership of our original Mineral Right Agreements and are trying to use them. That had a 5 year period from 2015 to 2020.
The land in Tyler County is under 3rd Great Grandfather Robert P. Anderson & Mary Weekly( Anderson) 2nd Great Grandfather Thomas D. Anderson & Rachel P. Keller (Anderson) Great Grandfather Robert Greer “Bud” Anderson & Ollie M. Swiger (Anderson), 2nd Great-Granduncle David Edgar Anderson
We do know that Alliance drilled the Oil and Gas Well and then capped it. I have taken a photo copy of the Antero Agreement that I received my youngest sister to Oil and Gas law firm here in Texas and they crossed out all the clause and said for my family to renegotiate for a new agreement with protection added for the Heirs. Has anyone else here from Tyler ran into the same problems with Antero?
