As per fact stated above, your mother in law is entitled to 1 share, if she didn't come forward to divide said property among other equal shareholders, you can file a suit for partition along with prayer of cancellation said transaction.

If it is owned by your father in law after his death the property will go to his legal heirs which include your late husband and his wife and other children if any. You can claim as a heir to your late husbands share in that property.
