What do you mean "the child's children are listed as heirs"? Listed where?
That document is just listing the people who have to be served or who could potentially have an interest in the estate. It doesn't mean they all inherit.
Under the language you gave the children of the deceased child would not inherit any of the estate under the will. If the will was not found to be valid then they could inherit under the laws of intestate succession but nothing in your facts indicate the will won't be valid.
Yes, based on that language in the will, that is correct.
That language is the way you phrase it when you want the estate to go only to surviving children and not to the heirs of the deceased children.
