If my Father was married but separated do I receive anything if he died without a Will?

Yes. Under Mississippi law the son of a person dying intestate (without a will) has the right to inherit a portion of the estate.  The spouse is also entitled to part of the estate. As to specifics, it depends on how many children, whether the spouse claims homestead rights, debts and other factors.
