Attorney(s) appearing for the Case
Ava N. Jackson, Oxford, for appellants.
Ben Barrett Smith, Batesville, for appellees.
Before HAWKINS, P.J., and ROBERTSON and SULLIVAN, JJ.
Supreme Court of Mississippi.
ROBERTSON, Justice, for the Court:
The kindred of the natural father of a woman born in 1898 but out of wedlock have asserted a claim to inherit from her under our amended statute of descent and distribution. The question is whether the father's kin have shouldered their burden of proving that the father both acknowledged and treated the woman as his daughter and did not refuse or neglect to support her when she was a child.
