I can answer oil and gas division order questions. I am most knowledgeable about as the purchaser side of the oil and condensate production. I can offer suggestions regarding probate and basic transfers of working, override, and royalty interests. DISCLAIMER: I am not a lawyer. I have seem and know what my company for instance accepts pertaining to these matters. Being from the purchasing end (and not the operator side) I do not have much experience with calculations or valuing property or minerals. I do not deal with acquisitions, exploration, or development of leases either.
I am a Division Order Analyst with a crude oil purchaser. I have worked in the division order and customer relations departments for the past 9 with a first purchaser. My company purchases and transports oil for operators and we make revenue distributions on their behalf. I analyze division order title opinions, prior purchaser pay sheets, probate, and other conveyances related to the set up and modification of pay decks (divisions of interest) in leases (wells) of oil around the county. I have been involved in the set-up of our contract pay leases in conjunction with our marketing and regulatory departments.

I am sorry for your problems but it seems that yours may now be legal. I am afraid I cannot do any kind of a search for you either; I can only offer advice. If you have a title opinion you should be able
If you had clear title up to the point where the third party recorded their title; I would think that you are still in the clear. If it had turned out their documents were recorded prior to your uncle
I work for a purchaser and there is, alas, no time limit for adjustments or changes in my experience. After a time a party's funds may be turned over to the state as unclaimed but they are never lost.
You will need to find out who is paying on the interest and then contact them. If they pay by record title you will be required to provide probate documents or an Affidavit of Heirship which has been recorded
In order to obtain the minerals you will need to probate his will or have an affidavit of heirship prepared and recorded in Lincoln County, OK by a non heir. A will is not honored unless it is probated
