If a grantor refuses to acknowledge his deed, the grantee or any person who claims
under him may apply to a court of record in the county where the land lies or where
the grantor or a subscribing witness to the deed resides, and such court shall thereupon
issue a summons to the grantor to appear at a certain time and place to hear the testimony
of the subscribing witnesses. Such summons, with a copy of the deed annexed, shall be served seven days at least
before the time therein assigned for proving the deed, and at such hearing its due
execution may be proved by the testimony of one or more of the subscribing witnesses.
