Highlight

Deeds must be construed as a whole to give effect to each provision, if reasonably possible.
The law presumes that differently spelled names refer to the same person when they sound alike or when common usage has by corruption or abbreviation made their pronunciation identical.
A quiet title judgment is not binding on any persons having interests in leases and wells who were not made parties to the action.
A non-party may maintain a suit to set aside an allegedly damaging judgment if he has an interest which is jeopardized by enforcement of the judgment and the circumstances support a present grant of relief.
