Yes, it is possible for siblings to utilize the 1031 exchange through what is called a "related party exchange" (see:

However, I would strongly recommend that you meet with a competent tax attorney (not just an accountant or CPA) to help you plan out your transfer here (you have both estate tax issues and the 1031 exchange in which you are going to be navigating liability and your end goal is going to be your ultimate "after tax return on investment" - which an attorney can assist you in planning as part of your overall finances, not just limited to trying to identify how to transfer a single property (any professional that tries to help you transfer a single property or perform a single transaction for tax purposes is not doing their job all the way - tax liability is always part of your overall financial picture and reducing your overall tax liability - and again, in your case, you need a specialist to help you navigate this one).
