Highlight

A county's tax deed gives it title or color of title to the whole estate in the land including the royalty interests.
A tax deed, valid upon its face, creates a presumptive title to the entire estate in the land which continues until it has been overcome by the affirmative action in court, by suit or counterclaim on the part of a person who has a sufficient interest to challenge the title.
Royalty interests cannot be "possessed" for purposes of the statute of limitations or adverse possession.<r> Laches is generally a question of fact.
