There are a couple of ways to find out who owns your property.  One is to go to the county clerk's office.(Not district clerk) They keep the recording of titles and can tell you who owns the property.  They also maintain all the assumed named filings.  They have the info, but some clerks are more helpful than others-- if they aren't helpful (even though they have the data), visit a title company and pay for a quick title search.  If will cost you a little, but it's sometimes less of a headache to have someone do it for you.
