First step...get an eldercare attorney ASAP. The medication history is relevant, along with whatever documentation you have. The other steps, like a doctor's evaluation, psychologist interview & MMSE test may also be useful...or not. Let the lawyer take the lead here. Proving exact date of dementia is a complex process, as is the process of onwindiing contracts and legal documents.
One thing to be crystal-clear about--and it may help you get an attorney--is to be crystal clear about the potential involvement of all parties. From the little I've read, it sounds as if your mother-in-law's son (AKA your husband) was set to inherit everything, but now your cousin has redirected the estate to himself/herself. So it's an estate tug-of-war by relatives, which can get ugly. One thing that a good eldercare attorney can do is to be an impartial third party, with the estate owner as the client. So...you're not getting yourself a lawyer, but your mother-in-law, accepting whatever is the true outcome of her wishes.
