Possibly. Texas law will assume that if an original will cannot be located, then the testator (the person who wrote the will) has destroyed or revoked it. However, a court may hear evidence that the will was destroyed or hidden by an heir. If the court finds that an heir destroyed the will, and you can prove what the original will contained, the court may (in its discretion) allow you to probate a copy of the will.
