There was an estate in south Florida in which the decedent died intestate and there was one nephew claiming. This nephew stated that the decedent was not married, had no children and only had one sibling, a brother who pre-deceased him. The nephew was the only child of the decedent's brother. We decided to review the decedent's family history to make sure that the nephew's description of the decedent's family was right.
He couldn't have been more wrong! We determined that there actually were ten brothers and sisters of the decedent. All of them had pre-deceased him. Some of their children had also pre-deceased him. When the dust settled, the original claimant's share had been slightly diluted. Instead of being the sole heir at law of the decedent, he ended up being one of eighty five claimants!
