Q: Co Heir sold property via Quit Claim Deed...part two

Thank you for the quick response. co heir sold property using a quit claim deed then the property was then sold to another party with a Joint tenancy warranty deed. There never was a probate case. We were unaware that the property existed because we were told at the funeral that my granddad sold everything. when records came online at OK land records we saw the transaction. Since there was no probate, my Granddad was the only one on title, she sold the property on her own and told no one except maybe her sister and split profits with her. Since then we have found several land transactions that took place. Some have had quiet title actions done as I suspect the new owners suspected something was wrong. The property I am asking about never had a quiet title action and there is another parcel that was restricted lands that she was unable to sell. Is it too late to probate this estate and if not what happens to the properties that she sold. My Granddad died almost 20 years ago
