Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in North Carolina

Probate of father's will

My husband's father died Aug 2001. His wife was listed as executrix of his estate. The night before his death, my husband's father asked my husband to come to see him - he did & was asked to sign Power of Attorney forms (giving my husband power of attorney). Unfortunately his father died that night. We have inquired to my husband's wife regarding probate of the will (my husband was to receive 25% of his estate) with no results. Last week we received a check for $10,000 (written fron the account of my husband's wife's son's account). We're not sure what this is for & how we should proceed.
