Mineral inheritance question

I have a question on how mineral rights could be divided. Say a man had mineral rights that were seperate property (before his marriage to his current wife). He passes, and then his wife passes some years later without either having any will regarding the rights. They have one child together, and the wife had a child from a previous marriage too that was not adopted or raised by the man, how would the rights be possibly divided between the two?

Depends on the state. In Oklahoma the 2 children would share equally.

It’s Texas. So you don’t think once he died the child that was his would get two thirds and the spouse would get a third, and then once the spouse died her third would be divided to the two kids?
