Can a spouse inherit property her husband was left to him by his grandparents in Mississippi?

In general, if your husband passed away without a will (intestate), the laws of intestate succession would come into effect. These laws determine how an estate is distributed when there is no valid will.

If there was a will, the will controls subject to your rights to renounce and receive a portion of the estate under intestate laws.

It makes no difference how he acquired the property.
