Howell, the Estate of Jo King Reid, and all Heirs of Jo King Reid, In the 11th District Court of Harris County, Texas, seeks to clear title for the benefit of Arturo G. Romero, as a question exists as to how Vivianna G. Pena originally acquired the Property from Jo King Reid, who appears to be previous owner (from 1988 to 2001). To that end, a deed exists in which Mayon and Lucille Hicks conveyed the Property to Willie Juanita King on February 27, 1956. On even date, Willie Juanita King executed a Declaration of Trust, which shows that the Property was left to her daughter, Jo King Reid, upon Willie Juanita King’s death. Willie Juanita King passed away on October 4, 1988, according to her Certificate of Death, on which Ms. Reid is referred to as the informant. Jo King Reid passed away on December 15, 2010, without heirs.
