    From about 1890 until 1936 my grandfather, Wm Richardson, owned about 19 sections of land along the Powder River near Miles City Montana. As he was growing up he was also a reliable sheep shearer and could shear up to 100 sheep a day for $0.15 each. He also drove a stagecoach around NE and Eastern Montana till he homesteaded, met my grandmother, an itinerent school teacher also in NE Montana, and paid pennies on the dollar for the homesteaders who wanted out for just enough money to get them back where they came from.

    He bred and raised horses for the US Army till it mechanized in the mid 1930s. He raised cattle for several years till his health forced him to sell in 1948 or 49. From what my father told me before he died at 90 years of age, in the early 1950s, the new owners of the family ranch struck oil and sounded out several different sites that could be drilled.

    Is there any way I can find if the specific mineral rights were specified in the actual sale of the property? I'm interested only inasmuch as I'd like to finish this story for my kids and grandkids and for the wonderfully romantic aspect of my grandfather, stagecoach driver, sheep-shearer, and all.

    My on-line name is "kwikie" only because my electric wheelchairs have mostly all been manufactured by

    "Quickie" Corp.

    Thank you and your help will be most appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Bernie
