If there be more than one testamentary paper in question in any such proceeding, the circuit court shall order them all to be produced. The circuit court shall order a trial by jury, if demanded by any person interested, to ascertain whether the will in question, or if there be more than one, which of them, or what part or parts of either or any of them, is the true will of the decedent; and, if trial by jury be not asked, the circuit court shall proceed to try and decide the question of probate, and shall make and enter in relation thereto such final judgment or order as the law and the evidence may require. A copy of such judgment or order shall be returned to, filed and recorded in, the office of the clerk of the county court, and also any will established in such proceedings and admitted to probate in the circuit court shall be returned to, filed, and recorded (if not already of record) in such office.
