There will have to be a suit to determine heirs and to quite title in Mississippi. Also, you need to keep in mind that Mississippi allows anyone who openly occupies the property to the exclusion of others for a period of 10 years is entitled to adversely possess it. So an occasional inspection of the property could be important.
