I'm trying to find out who owns the mineral rights to land my parents owned. They had either 40 or 43 acres in Latimer County Oklahoma which they sold I believe somewhere between 1980 and 1990. My Dad died in 1995 and my Mother in 2009. I found a couple of letters from some landmen dated 2001 wanting to lease the mineral rights. They were addressed to my Mother and me, bu I never knew about them until a few weeks ago while going through some old papers and stuff. Since they were sent in 2001, that leads me to believe they didn't sell the mineral rights and I'm their only child.
I've been to the County Clerks office and found a lot about the land they owned (and some I didn't know they owned), but I don't know how to make heads or tails out of it. So, I really would like to find out where to go from here.
Thanks for any help.
