Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you saying that one of the sons passed, but he had two children?
Have you seen the will or do you have a copy of it?
This is going to depend strictly on what the will says. If it has a "survivorship clause" that states that any heir has to survive the testator in order to inherit, then they would not because if an heir passes, then their gift terminates as well and the surviving heirs divide up the entire estate.
But if it doesn't have a survivorship clause, and state that they take "per stirpes" then the children would inherit their deceased parent's share. The children basically "step into the shoes" of the parent and divide their share equally.
So to know for sure, you have to look at the will..
