        (1)         If, at the expiration of 6 months from the death of any person, the executor to whom probate has been granted, or the administrator, is residing, out of the jurisdiction, the Court may upon the application of any creditor or person interested in the estate, grant to the applicant special letters of administration of the estate of such deceased person, with limited or unlimited powers.
