SEC. 11-17-29. Any other title may be confirmed.
The owner in possession of any land, or the owner thereof who may be out of possession, if there be no adverse occupancy thereof, may file a bill in the chancery court to have his title confirmed and quieted. The law for notice, process, proceedings, and practice, as provided for confirming and quieting tax titles shall apply, no matter by what tenure the complainant may hold. Unknown and nonresident parties may be made defendants as they are made defendants to proceedings to confirm tax titles. If on the final hearing of any such suit, the court shall be satisfied that the complainant is the real owner of the land, it shall so adjudge, and its decree shall be conclusive evidence of title as determined from the date of the decree as against all parties defendant.
