Any person may be a devisee or legatee including married women, minors and corporations.
The devisee, by the will, acted very strangely about the property.
If he dies intestate it goes to his heir-at-law, and if he devises the estate it goes to the devisee.
Or, if the land has been given to a devisee, he can require the executor or administrator to pay the mortgage.
A person to whom real estate is given is called a devisee; the receiver of personal property a legatee.
A person benefiting under a will is a legatee of money, or a devisee of land, and not an heir to either.
