Inherited 1/8 royalty in S23, 14N, 13 W (N/2 and SE/4). It is tied to the following properties' production by an entirities clause: S24, 14N, 13W (S/2 & W/2); S25, 14N, 13W (all in); S14, 14N, 13W (SE/4).
I have a deed of sale recorded in 1954 to my father. I have his Arkansas will and his AR trust papers, no probate. Need to transfer ownership to the heirs. We have been paid a meager sum by one operator (transferred in 2016) since our father' death, but repeated efforts to get any records as to why they paid us has not been met with success. They cannot answer because the records were transferred. The current operator says they do not have the records. Other back production monies in our section equal far less than a lawyer proposes to charge. Right now, paying legal fees is out of the question. I am familiar with the Watonga County Courthouse and with searching for mineral records. Please, is there any part of this tedious task that I can accomplish on my own? If only Oklahoma was involved it would be a lot easier. Yes, I have touched on this before, but I knew less than I know now.
