I was informed not to use the name of the trust in a public forum, but any secondary search of particulars that reveal it is aok.
The Trust lists Block 13 and Sections:
126 E Half, 320 Acres, #3534
127, All, 640 Acres, #274
164 E Half and SW Half, 480 Acres, #1405.
From 1944 to 1981, many actions are listed about relatives, leases, and financial notations, with the last entry before the 25 year lull, Assignment of O & G Lease, Burkholder Terry L, Gulf Oil Corp, 3/20/1981.
Next entry is 6/7/2004, OG&M Lease, B 13, S 127, Balmorhea Ranches, TS Dudley Land Co, then 8/31/2006, OG&M Lease, Our Family Trust, Banner Energy, B 13, S 127.
More notations listed through to the latest date I could find in 3/17/2017.
The only communication we’ve had about the trust transactions was to appt a new trustee in 2006. Nothing at all about actual activity of any type. In all the documentation I’ve searched through, 1440 acres are listed for 126,127,164 for the mineral rights deed. Since 1981, all we know is we know nothing.
Also, on 126 & 164, under the trust name, sometimes the half and quarter notations change and I wonder if another person’s part of those sections were mistakenly listed with our entries.
It’s like unpeeling a blooming onion, if not a member of the websites that have precise information, bec the grantor/grantee search can go on and on when listing each grantee as grantor. And how one company attaches to the one designated to lease property, and another company attaches to it and another one attaches to that one and so on.
I admit I barely make sense of all the activity associated to the mineral rights deed. Has there been/is/are there actual lease transactions according to some of the descriptions about the document type for OGM leases? Or other types of accounts?
I’m apologizing for requesting assistance to understand what is the state of our family trust. Other relatives have the same earnest desire to know but don’t go online at all, being much older or afraid of trolls and hackers.
I’ve only been able to do limited searches but it is even more frustrating not being able to communicate with the trustee.
