In most states there is a statutory provision that, if a child living at the testator's death, or who has died prior to such death leaving issue, was born after the execution of the will, such child or issue shall take the share to which he or they would have been entitled if testator had died intestate. In a number of the states, such a provision applies only in case the child or issue were not provided for otherwise by testator, or were not intentionally omitted.16 In a number of states, statutes of this character, entitling an omitted child to the share which he would have had if deceased had died intestate, are not restricted in their application to children born after the execution of the will, but apply in the case of any child, usually whether that child was omitted intentionally or unintentionally.17
