To Dorothy Johnson and Thomas Mullins, We have finally figured out where the lease was for the well that I said we didn't have a lease for. We all had mineral rights from our parents. Then an uncle passed away and we inherited rights from his estate. Anyway, the section 17 that I refered to was leased out under his estate, so when we finally received our rights, they had already been leased out. So, the mystery of the missing lease is solved. Thanks again for your help.
Happy to hear you were able to get an explanation! I hope that either the estate or the operating company was able to provide you with a copy of the lease. If not, you might want to get one from the county clerk. Enjoy the additional revenue!
