Unless a contrary intent is expressly indicated in the deed, the words “die without
issue”, or “die without leaving issue”, or other words in a deed which may imply either
a lack or a failure of issue of a person in his lifetime, or at the time of his death,
or an indefinite failure of his issue, mean a lack or a failure of issue in the lifetime,
or at the time of the death of the person, and not an indefinite failure of his issue.
