If you replace those Refseq transcript IDs with HUGO gene names or Ensembl transcript IDs, you can create an HGVS formatted variant list for Ensembl's Variant Effect Predictor, which reports minor allele frequencies from 1000 genomes and NHLBI ESP. Here's 7 of your 9 variants in HGVS format with HUGO symbols:
Visit the VEP web interface, paste the data above into the big empty box, and hit Run. MAFs will be reported where available. Your following 2 variants will fail in VEP since they use reference alleles that mismatch what's in the actual transcript, so there's something wrong there:
In general, it's always best to use genomic coordinates for this kind of annotation, but they might not always be provided in publications. The bare minimum you need is chromosome, position, reference_allele, and variant_allele. If you have a VCF (Variant Call Format) file, then try vcf2maf that runs VEP on all variants to generate a Mutation Annotation Format (MAF) file, a tab-delimited format which will include the Minor Allele Frequency (MAF) data and lots of additional useful annotations listed here Note that the "maf" in vcf2maf refers to Mutation Annotation Format.
