Upon information and belief, Plaintiff states that Victor D. Thompson, Sr., Victor D. Thompson II, Ryan D. Thompson and Jason D. Thompson (collectively "Thompson Defendants") are all the the known heirs of Eugenia Thompson.
Upon information and belief, Victor D. Thompson, Sr., would have inherited the Real Estate owned by his deceased wife, Eugenia Thompson, under the Ohio Statute of descent and distribution, O.R.C. ^2105.06(B).
Upon information and belief, Victor D. Thompson II, Ryan D. Thompson and Jason D. Thompson, any of their spouses or any other unknown heirs would not inherit any portion of the Real Estate under O.R.C. §2105.06(B).
Upon information and belief, Victor D. Thompson Sr. intended and would have conveyed a 100% fee simple interest in the Real Estate by virtue of the Davis Deed if his wife's interest had been properly probated.

(2) Plaintiff seeks any and all further remedies, both equitable and legal, this Court deems just and proper.
