What is SON?

An Immediate male descendant; the correlative of “father.” Technically a word of purchase, unless explained. Its meaning may be extended by construction to include more remote descendants, such as a grandchild, and also to include an illegitimate male child, though the presumption is against this. See Flora v. Anderson
