Answer:  DID WELL BY THEM

(I’m sure Ma and Pa did very well for themselves.  Leasing your land for oil wells pays a whole lot better than farming.  And, you’ll no longer have to wake up at the crack of dawn, and work like a dog all day.  Of course, there are environmental repercussions, but that’s for the grand kids to worry about.
