What is the specific question with which I could assist?
If the state was aware of the circumstances and transferred the title to you then once you get the title you can go to JP court and ask the JP to order her to turn it over.
The only issues I see is that normally there has to b some kind of probate done before anyone gets anything from an estate and so the JP may tell you that you need to go to probate court instead of their court. That is the only real issue I see.
With no will all of his property should have gone to you (if he was not married) if you went through a probate court.
