We are in the process of starting ancillary probate process in Pottawatomie Co. for my deceased father’s estate. We have some deeds and old oil and gas leases (paid-up) that we found in his files. I’m trying to verify that he still owned the interests referenced in four of the old oil and gas leases (not really very old, dates range 2007-2013). The Lessee companies have not been responsive.
We asked the county clerk to search the county records, but they didn’t find any mineral deeds in his name for these, and they said they don’t research mineral rights. Frankly, I don’t know if our father had mineral rights or deeds for these, however, we do have mineral deeds for other properties.
The mineral interest locations we’re researching are:
Pottawatomie Co, OK Twnshp Rnge Sec Half Quarter 6N 2E 11 SESE 6N 2E 15 E SW 6N 2E 22 NWSW 6N 2E 30 NE
Any suggestions on what else I can do to verify whether we have mineral deeds, mineral rights, royalty rights, etc for these? Thank you
