All estates must pass through probate court.  Will the will their are
executores, with an intestate the estate has administrators.  The estate
must be split between the hiers.  IF the intestate is married with children
the wife has dower rights to the estate.  USually 1/3 of the value.  The
other 2/3s is divided between the children or the child's heirs recieving
their parents portion.  If the intestate died married without the children.
the spouse recieved 1/2 of the estate with the other 1/2 divided between the
parents and sibilngs or the siblings heirs.  If the intestate died without
spouse or children then the estate went the parents and siblings.

The equity court records will records of estate payments to the minor heirs
and orders of division.
