She does not have in the first place any share in the ancestral property of her deceased husband if it has not been divided. So the answer is NO.

if your sister in law tries to sell any share in property move court and obtain an injunction restraining her from doing so . if yoour elder brother is denying other brothers a share in joint family property file partition suit for your share in the property . the widow does not have share in ancestral property if no division has taken place
