This is an appeal from a decree of the Montgomery County Circuit Court revoking letters of administration previously granted
appellant and ordering that appellee serve as administratrix of the estate of James W. Brown, deceased. We affirm. James W. Brown died intestate July 11, 1977. Nine days later, pursuant to Alabama Code of 1975, § 43-2-40, appellant
Matthis W. Piel filed his petition for letters of administration with the probate court of Montgomery County. That petition
was granted. On July 22, 1977 Doris Brown, the appellee, petitioned that court to revoke the appointment of Piel and instead
to grant the letters of administration to her in accord with the statute. The matter was removed to the circuit court of Montgomery
County on August 15, 1977 when appellee petitioned for a declaration of her rights as the deceased's widow. Following a trial
judgment was rendered for appellee on November 4, 1977. Appellant's motion for a new trial was denied on November 30, 1977.
