This is something that you and the other heirs should get a lawyer to help with. Not sure what the "info" is that she is asking for, but you should not give her anything without knowing the market value of the land and the value of the mineral rights. Treat this as selling land to her. You should not sell land without finding the market value of the property which an expert assessor can do. Then you can negotiate a deal with her if selling is what you wish to do. Again a lawyer should be used by you and all of the other interested parties if you do not feel comfortable handling this on your own.
