This suit is a declaratory judgment action brought by the Republic National Bank of Dallas, Trustee, under the will of A. C. Ebie, deceased, and hereinafter called "Trustee" as plaintiff, in which Mrs. Dorothy Ebie Wright, hereinafter called "Mrs. Wright" and her husband, Frank Wright, and Mrs. Ida L. Fredericks, hereinafter called "Mrs. Fredericks," a widow, and Hope Cottage Association of Dallas, Texas, hereinafter called "Hope Cottage" were joined as defendants. The action sought construction of the will of A. C. Ebie, deceased, and also the will of Nelson Russell Ebie, hereinafter called "Russell," a son of A. C. Ebie, deceased, and a brother of Mrs. Wright; also a former husband of Mrs. Fredericks from whom she had obtained a divorce on October 1, 1940. A. C. Ebie died on February 26, 1938, leaving a will which was probated on April 5, 1938, and under which will the Trustee is acting. Russell made his will on March 12, 1938, and he died on September 18, 1944, without any issue or having adopted any children. Mrs. Fredericks offered Russells will for probate on March 5, 1947, and thereafter it was admited to probate. Mrs. Wright had no children, nor had she adopted any children up to the time this cause was argued in our Court on April 27, 1955.
