Container of a deceased person found after his demise


My father passed away a few years ago. I have very recently found a container that belonged to him which was hidden away somewhere. It mainly contained money. I have separated the money into two categories:

1. Monies which belonged to my grandfather's or grandmother's estate - I have deduced this from notes/letters left behind.

2. Monies which I feel belonged to my father - However, I cannot say this with absolute conviction or verify accordingly due to there being no notes/letters attached to it.
