Every executor, administrator, and guardian authorized to sell real estate by

decree of court shall be required, upon application to the probate court by an

heir, creditor, ward, or other person interested in the estate, to make answer,

upon oath, as to all matters touching his or her compliance with the decree, as

fully as he or she is liable, to account and be examined in reference to the
