Tom, I vaguely remember Opal Black but have no information on the land dealings. I also vaguely remember seeing my dad talk to Ducky Clements. The Pecos river is mainly a North/South River so if his four sections were south of the Pecos, I presume that would have put them in Pecos county in the vicinity of Imperial (South of Grandfalls about 10 miles) where I went to high schol. That area had some oil play but was not as prolific as the land around Royalty. When I was in high school the main support was cotton; about 50,000 acres in the Imperial/Buena Vist area. After I was grown, been to war, and returned and got married I ran a cotton gin there during the waning years of the farming industry. I moved to El Paso in about 1954 and kind of lost touch with the Pecos county country.
