You will need a lawyer in Pfugerville to file a suit to quiet title.Here the court awards you clear title.The court determines that you are the only one wiht an interest and awards it to you.Texas allows for such suits and this is the way they resolve title issues like this.This is an equitable action to remove a cloud from the title to property.
