§44-1-17. Food and fuel for family.
The provisions and fuel (or so much thereof as may be
necessary) which, at the death of any person, shall have been
laid in for consumption in his family, shall remain for the use
of such family, if the same be desired by any member of it,
without account thereof being made. Any livestock necessary for
the food of the family may be killed for that use before the sale
