Texas: My (mentally ill) great Aunt signed ownership of 47

Customer Question

Texas: My (mentally ill) great Aunt signed ownership of 47 ac. of land to her brother, a cousin, & another person. Because she was mental, the law is saying she cannot sign a legal contract. My wife & I (ONLY) has paid the taxes for over 30 years. Is there any way that we could have a deed for the property?
