Who says it is invallid and why?
I really need to know exactly what the "right of way" states. Was it notarized? Was it filed in the county clerk's office? Do any deeds refer to or include the right of way?
Does it say right of way or easement?

1. Your credit card has not been debited.
2. Legal right of way and deeded are "apples and oranges"
Legal right of way...in a deed or not....can be of any number of types. eg. Prescriptive....when it is hostile to the rights of the adjoining landowner....letting one's horses go on the adjoining lot. You have no "legal right to ask anyone for the description." You want to assert the claim...you need to prove the existence of the right of way/easement.
Necessity.....landlocked situation....needing access to property that has no ingress/egress from a road.
Any of these easements can BE INCLUDED IN A DEED OR A DOCUMENT CALLED "EASEMENT". They are either legal or not depending on the circumstances.
3. Your case: What do you mean you now own the ground? Didn't your relatives own it and pass it to you? You are making the claim so you have the burden of proving what the right of way said...you have no "legal right" as such to obtain the description from anyone unless you start a lawsuit and then you can obtain it during what we call "discovery."

Your case is very complicated.
Sorry you were not happy. You have not been charged because you had not accepted any of my answers which is of course your right. I will opt out and refer to another expert.
