Recent Springing Power of Attorney questions

Hello. I am dealing with an issue where I am having a problem

Hello. I am dealing with an issue where I am having a problem with some family members who I believe have plans to bring me harm for monetary gain. I think my mother is trying to get my share of my elderly wealthy grandparents money that they have set up in a trust. What I believe is an irrevocable trust. I suspect they have plans to cause me disabling harm and come in and get a power of attorney over my money / assests prior to my grandparents passing. This is going to be enough money that I don't feel I have anyone I can trust to use in a springing power of attorney since I am not married. What can I put in place to see to it they can't get that money or any other of my money / assets in the event I become incapicated.

Some of my family members are trying to position themselves

Some of my family members are trying to position themselves to get a power of attorney or guardianship over me and have made accusations I am mentally ill. I suspect they would even cause me to have an accident to get me stated as being incompetent. My mother is after some money my dad left me when he died. Our relationship is bad but they are my only next of kin and I don't have anyone I trust enough to put in as a springing power of attorney. What should I do so they can never get the money if something happens to me?

My father died several years ago In Oklahoma. I asked my stepmother to see his will but she refused. After his funeral she asked me what of his I wanted.

Do I have any recourse?

My 90-year-old Uncle in IL was found lying on his apartment

My 90-year-old Uncle in IL was found lying on his apartment floor for three days and is now in a home. He seems to have had a stroke and can't recall if he ever wrote a will. He never married. Has one living sister and 11 nieces and nephews. He owned no property and has nieces and nephews taking care of his property and health POA. Before this he was alert but secretive and has a great deal of financial assets. When I was young, I know he spoke of a will and can't imagine he did not draw up something. But he doesn't know and anyone else close to him who might know has passed. How to you find a will that may have been written?
