HEIRS SUE OVER PART IN ESTATE
Son and Daughter Charge Brother Exerted Influence in Satterwhite Will
Declaring the large estate of the pioneer Satterwhite family of San Bernardino had been unequally disposed of among the heirs, Mrs. Alberlia Dollie Bouterious and William T. Satterwhite, an examiner for the State Railroad Commission in Oakland, yesterday filed separate contests of the will of their mother, the late Mrs. Mary A. McDonald, who died December 17, 1923.
Both contestants based their suits on allegations that Walter Satterwhite, another son, had received more than a proper share of the estate. He also was charged with exerting an undue influence over his mother.
Dr. Reginald R. McDonald, the surviving husband, was left $5 under the terms of his wife's will, while the remainder of the property was apportioned among three sons and the daughter.
Mrs. Bouterious set forth the following estimates of value of the specific bequests: $86,000 to Walter Satterwhite, $50,000 to William T. Satterwhite and John W. Satterwhite jointly, $9,000 to herself.
She declared the will was not drawn according to the law and that Mrs. McDonald was incompetent at the time the document was executed.
