  1. Your grandfather can name anyone he wants in his will. If he is in a community property state, his surviving spouse will get the house if it was purchased after they were married. If it was not community property, then his will determines who inherits the house. After the surviving spouse dies, her biological children inherit the house.


  2. the property belongs to the survivor of the descendants.
    in your case, the first wife is the legal heir of the descendant.But as she and her son is no more alive then the property belongs to the first wifes daughter in law.
    But the second wife cannot be ignored from usage of the property. however rite to sell vests in hands of the daughter in law.if the daughter in law sells the house before death of the second wife then she has to pay a monthly fixed amount as allowance from that property


  3. Both wives and the sons and daughters are primary legal heirs.

    !st wife, her son, 2nd wife her two sons and one daughters are primary legal heirs totaling 6 direct legal heirs.

    These 6 will have equal share of 1/ 6 share each.

    Since 1st wife and her son have died, their entitlement of 2/ 6 share will be distributed among 1st wife’s daughter-in-law & her two sons quually.

    Surviving 2nd wife and her two sons and the daughter will have 1/ 6 share each!
