Presumption Of Death; Survivorship





=Presumption of Death.=--If a person be unheard of for seven years, the
court may, on application by the nearest relative, presume death to have
taken place. If, however, it can be shown that in all probability death
had occurred in a certain accident or shipwreck, the decree may be made
much earlier.

=Presumption of Survivorship.=--When two or more related persons perish
in a common accident, it may be necessary, in order to decide questions
of succession, to determine which of them died first. It is generally
accepted that the stronger and more vigorous will survive longest.
