 In the Matter of the Estate of MARY JANE TAYLOR, Deceased.


 Now on this the 30th day of September 1913, comes MILLIE JANE ROBERTS nee TAYLOR, a sister of the deceased, joined by her husband, MOSES ROBERTS, and DANIEL ROBERTS as the surviving spouse of ELLEN ROBERTS, nee TAYLOR, deceased and file and present to the Court their petition, praying for an order of the Court approving and confirming a certain deed of conveyance executed by them to JOSEPH M. BETTES, on the 29th day of September 1913, to the follow described real estate, to-wit:

The NW 1/4 of NE 1/4 of SE 1/4 and NW 1/4 of SE 1/4 and W 1/2 of SW 1/4 of SE 1/4 and E 1/2 of SE 1/4 of SW 1/4 and SE 1/4 of NE 1/4 of SW 1/4 of Section 17, Township 5 South, Range 3 West and NE 1/4 of Section 10, Township 7, South, Range 16 East, and being of the Government appraised value of $1,041.28.

 And the Court being advised in the premises finds that MARY JANE TAYLOR was a full blood Choctaw Indian, who appears upon the roll of Choctaw by blood, opposite Roll No. 3707; that she was a resident of the Central District of the Indian Territory residing in the Antlers Court Division; that she departed this life intestate on or about the 10th day of March 1904, seized of the aforedescribed lands which were allotted to her by the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations, and conveyed to her by allotment and homestead patent, and that at the time of her death she was seized with a  fee simple in said aforedescribed lands.

 The Court further finds that on the 23rd day of January 1905 an administrator was appointed over her estate by the United States Court in the Indian Territory for the Central District at Antlers, which cause was duly pending at the time of the admission of the State of Oklahoma into the Union, and this cause was transferred by the District Court of Pushmataha County, Oklahoma, as successor of the United States court in the Indian Territory for the Central District, to this Court, and said cause is still pending in this court.  

 The Court further finds that said petitioners with JOSHUA ROBERTS, a minor, are the sole and only surviving heirs at law of the said MARY JANE TAYLOR, deceased.

 The Court further finds that on the 29th day of September 1913, petitioners executed a warranty deed  to JOSEPH M. BETTES for and in consideration of the sum of One Thousand and Fifty ($1,050.00) Dollars, cash in hand to them paid, and did convey by said above described real estate. 

 The Court further finds that the deed was duly signed and acknowledged by the petitioners and that this Court has jurisdiction, and that the consideration for the said deed is fully paid, and that said consideration is more than the Government appraised value, and that the same is reasonable, adequate and wholly satisfactory to the said petitioners and further finds further said conveyance of said real estate to the said JOSEPH M. BETTES, should be in all things approved and confirmed.

 IT IS THEREFORE BY THE COURT CONSIDERED, ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED, That the said conveyance of the above described lands by Warranty Deed dated the 29th day of September 1913, from the said petitioners to the said JOSEPH M. BETTES, his heirs and assigns, be and the same is hereby in all things approved and confirmed, and declared legal and valid.
