Last Will and Testament
In the Name of God, Amen I, Ludwig Young of Somerset Township, Somerset County, and the State of Pennsylvania, being of sound mind and memory, do make this my last will and testament. First, I give my soul to the Almighty God who give it, and my body to the ground to be buried in a Christian-like manner. And after the payment of my just debts and funeral expenses, I leave and bequeath the real and personal property which it has pleased God to bless me with in this life the following manner: viz- - I leave andbequeath to my sons Jacob and John the tract of land on which I now live containing 500 acres, be the more or less, to them, to thier heirs, and assignees, forever. The said Jacob and John paying to my daughters the just sum of $35000.00 of which my son Jacob shall pay $2333.33 and my son John $1165.67 in the following manner and on the respective times herein after mentioned: viz-my sons Jacob and John shall pay one year after my decease to my daughters Mary and Rosina $250.00 Two years after my sons Jaob and John shall pay to my daughters Catherine and Sarah $250.00 Three years after my death they shall pay to my daughters Elizabeth, Eve, and Mariana $375.00 and so on yearly until the whole is paid according as they are charged for their lands until the whole is paid. Not a cent shall be allowed them for their buildings, for I have paid for it myself. They have the land cheap for $8.00 per acre and I took $500.00 off for their portion. They shall have their deeds as soon as they have given their notes to their sisters. Item: I leave and bequeath to my sons Lewis and Isaac the tract of land on which my sons at present live, adjoining the land of Peter Countryman and Daniel Stahl and others, to be divided between them, share and share alike to them and to same shall be divided by three respectable free-holders of Somerset County, to be chosen by my executors or the survivor of them, which division shall be conclusive. My son Isaac shall have no power to sell his land, and he shall live on it during his lifetime, and after his decease shall be for his children. And I further direct that my books and my clock shall remain with my children, nd whoever of them gives the most for it shall have it. I so herby revoke all former wills make by me and do appoint my sons Lewis and my son-in-law Henry Baker executors of this my last will and testament. In testimony of this being my last will and testament I have hereunto set my hand and seal the 4th day of August in teh year of our Lord A.D. 1826.
