I want to look further for closure as much as possible for my sister's and I...
I'm sorry for your loss. Check the local chancery clerk's office to see if his will was recorded. Do this in the county where he resided, or you think he may have lived or had property at in the past. If there is no will, then the estate is distributed into eight portions because there are eight heirs. This is Mississippi law on intestate succession, which means there is no will.
In addition to what I have already stated, some property may have been arranged to circumvent the formalities and expenses of estate probate. An example would be a deed that includes rights of survivorship, or a trust. These could and also should be recorded in the chancery clerk's office.
This is not legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
