Eighty-six-year-old James Murphy could not have been more pleased to get a phone call about three months ago from Assets International informing him that he and his two siblings were entitled to hundreds of thousands in mineral royalties that they inherited from their father, who died in 1985.

“They hunted the whole thing down and found some royalty payments we were entitled to,” said Mr. Murphy of Texarkana, Texas. He and his brother and sister recently received their first payment of more than $150,000 from an oil and gas firm and will get a check each month as long as they live.
