Sec. § 1031

The complaint in an action for dower must describe the property claimed with common certainty, by setting forth the name of the township or tract and the number of the lot, if there is any, or in some other appropriate manner, so that from the description, possession of the property claimed may be delivered where the plaintiff is entitled thereto, and must set forth the name of the plaintiff’s husband.
