24.-3d. Estate in dower. Dower is an estate for life which the law
gives the widow in the third part of the lands and tenements, or
hereditaments of which the husband was solely seised, at any time during the
coverture, of an estate in fee or in tail, in possession, and to which
estate in the lands and tenements the issue, if any of such widow, might, by
possibility, have inherited. In Pennsylvania, the sole seisin of the.
husband is not necessary. Watk. Prin. Con. 38; Lit. Sec. 36; Act of Penna.
March 31, 1812.
25. To create a title to the dower, three things are indispensably
requisite: 1. Marriage. This must be a marriage not absolutely void, and
existing at the death of the husband; a wife de facto, whose marriage is
voidable by decree, as well as a wife de jure, is entitled to it; and the
wife shall be endowed, though the marriage be within the age of consent, and
the husband dies within that age. Co. Litt. 33, a; 7 Co. 42; Doct. & Stud.
22; Cruise, Dig. t. 6, c. 2, s, 2, et seq.
26.-2. Seisin. The husband must have been seised, some time during the
coverture, of the estate of which the wife is dowable. Co. Litt. 31, a. An
actual seisin is not indispensable, a seisin in law is sufficient. As to the
effect of a transitory seisin, see 4 Kent, Com. 38; 2 Bl. Com. 132; Co.
Litt. 31, a.
27.-3. Death of the husband. This must be a natural death; though
there are authorities which declare that a civil death shall have the same
effect. Cruise, Dig. tit. 6, ch. 2, Sec. 22. Vide, generally, 8 Vin. Ab.

28.-4th. Estate tail after possibility of issue extinct. By this
awkward, but perhaps necessary periphrasis, justified by Sir William
Blackstone, 2 Com. 124, is meant the estate which is thus described by
Littleton, Sec. 32 when tenements are given to a man and his wife in special
tail, if one of them die without issue, the survivor is tenant in tail after
possibility of issue extinct."
29. This estate though, strictly speaking, not more than an estate for
life, partakes in some circumstances of the nature of an estate tail. For a
tenant in tail after possibility of issue extinct, has eight qualities or
privileges in comm
