A: Unless this involved a vessel or had some other kind of maritime connection, it looks more like something on which a probate - estate planning attorney would be able to offer meaningful insight. You could repost and add Probate and Estate Planning to your Real Estate category, or you could reach out to attorneys in your area who handle wills, trusts, and estates. Good luck

A: I would have to read your father's will and research the land, but my suspicions are that you and your siblings own the land. If the land has been sold, then you are right against the outermost limits of challenging the deed, and it may have already passed.
