An Oil and Gas Lease from Edward E. and Charlene Ross, husband and wife and David N. and Wanda Ross, husband and wife, to Rowley & Brown Petroleum Corporation, consisting of 285.1 acres, dated December 31, 1979, filed for record January 2, 1980 and recorded in Volume 97, Page 833 of the Lease Records of Coshocton County, Ohio.

Jenkins, East by lands of Co. Rd. 53, M. Gordon, South by lands of M. Gordon, M. Barrick, B. Groves, and West by lands of E&D Roos (the “Leased Property”).

ETM Holdings, LLC, acquired a portion of the Leased Property by deed recorded at Official Records Volume 668, Page 136 of the Records of Coshocton County, Ohio.

Please be advised that because of the failure and breach of the Lease, ETM Holdings, LLC, the current fee simple owners of a portion of the Leased Property, intend to file for record an affidavit of forfeiture pursuant to ORC 5301.332 with the County Recorder of Holmes County, Ohio, if you do not release the Lease of record within thirty (30) days from the date of publication of this Notice.
