Miami, FL asked in Real Estate Law for North Carolina

Q: When both spouses die in a TBE marriage, no will The wife had nothing. Who’s heirs are entitled?

The land came from my grandmother, brought in 1949. Grandmother died with no will and my father inherited all her property, then signed a Tenants By Entirety on the property with his 2nd wife(not my mother)

He died first with no will, then she died later on with no will and, the property became heir property.

So i’am trying to find out if the blood son’s are entitled to the heir property or, his wife’s daughter (Stepdaughter). Since neither had a will and it originally came from our side of the family and the wife had nothing?
