“A document said to be the last will and testament of Brigham Young will go to the highest bidder on June 8 when a Pennsylvania auctioning company puts the document on the market.
Sanford Alderfer Auction Company acquired the document from an anonymous owner whose ancestor was a probate judge in the territory of Utah and who collected autographs and documents from the late 1800s.”

“The five-page document was filed Sept. 4, 1877. It states that $25 from President Young’s estate should be paid each month to each of the 18 wives named in the will.”
