We think the war is over; the Civil War. It is not. It has taken on a new and vicious form, in my opinion; Exxon-Mobil. It was years after gas and oil was found on Grandma Becky’s land in Upshur County, Gladewater, Texas that I realized what is really happening. When the East Texas Oil Field was discovered in 1931, the Klu Klux Klan routed all the blacks from their land by buying their titles or killing them. That’s right, the people in Gladewater made all the uniforms for the Confederate Army during the Civil War. They were the straight good ole boys; licking their wounds. The 700 acres Grandma Becky owned title, lock, stock and barrel is in the center of the East Texas Oil Field geographically, the black sharecroppers and her family met the wrath of the crooked lawyers and the Klu Klux Klan. By the time oil and gas was discovered by Exxon-Mobil in 1980 on what is now Gladewater Gas Unit #5, Wells 1 & 2, which has subsequently produced billions of cubic feet of gas and millions of barrels of oil in the last thirty years, the tilde opinion had to be cured. The claimants came out of the wood-works, my grandmother is a true heir to the oil and gas, may she rest in peace. They had warranty deeds, titles, wills, adverse possessions, probated wills, and they didn’t get the oil and gas lease. This is how the game works; Ex on-Mobil tells us that the well want pay off for a number of years, it costs millions to create, most wells dry up in five to eight years, this is producing thirty years later, they unitize the whole city of Gladewater, Texas, cut our production, shut-in our wells, and act like they don’t know that the high cost gas coming from the wells was not selling for $20.00 a thousand cubic fee in 1981. They tell me it was $2.00 a thousand cubic feet and we will profit after the well is paid off; based on the five to eight year life expectancy scenario, we get nothing. They didn’t know this well perforated the mother-lode of oil and gas in the East Texas Oil Field; it want go away. The Haynesville Field structure in the Cotton Valley Lime is causing excitement in the East Texas Oil Field right now as I write. The wells were producing until recently but their is no production data going to the Texas Railroad Commission; why would the wells be shut-in now? The fact is that after gas comes oil, Exxon-Mobil is making us an example; the new Klu Klux Klan in business suits and skyscrapers. They can’t threaten us, with the whip and guns; they just breach the contract and dare anyone to protect our rights as royalty owners. There influence goes all the way to Washington, D.C. because my Texas Congressman want address the issue, the Department of Energy want address the issue, the Treasury Department want address the issue, the Department of Interior want address the issue, the IRS want address the issue; it would stir up a massive fraud investigation against the good ole boys in Upshur County, Texas and the East Texas Oil Field.. It is a throw back to the Jim-Crow days when the Klu Klux Klan killed so many of us black people, FREE Americans, but now they are killing my destiny. The City of Gladewater built a lake over much of our land, left my Granny the escrow; there will be no wells on this land; their sick logic. There is a grave in a cemetery in Upshur, County, Gladewater, Texas with a headstone of my Grandma Becky, it has been defaced; ‘ A WHITE WOMAN WHO LOVED NIGGERS’. If I was of European descent this would not be happening, my family would be wealthy; the Exxon-Mobil aka Klu Klux Klan is STILL IN EFFECT. I bet President Obama will do something; anybody have his cell number.
