Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in Tennessee

My father passed away 8 years ago and left a will naming my great nephew as the sole beneficiary of his estate. Now my nephew, who is the executor of the estate, is suing me for a few small items that my father gave me appoximately 20-40 years ago, saying that they are part of my father's estate. Am I legally obligated to give these items back? Thank you.
