The Crimes Act was made to provide a clearer punishment of certain crimes against the United States. Part of it includes: Changing the maximum sentence of imprisonment to be increased from seven to ten years and changing the maximum fine from $5,000 to $10,000.

1827 · Slavery Becomes Illegal in New York State

During the years 1799 to 1827, New York went through a period of gradual emancipation. A Gradual Emancipation Law was passed in 1799 which freed slave children born after July 4, 1799. However, they were indentured until 25 years old for women and 28 years old for men. A law passed 1817 which freed slaves born before 1799, yet delayed their emancipation for ten years. All remaining slaves were freed in New York State on July 4, 1827.

1830 · The Second Great Awakening

Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.

Name Meaning

Irish: in Ireland, this is generally the English name in 2 below, but it was also adopted for any of several Irish surnames that contain or appear to contain moch, which means ‘early’ or ‘timely’, including Ó Mocháin (see Mohan ), Ó Mochóir, Ó Mochéirghe, and Ó Maoil-Mhochéirghe (from a personal name meaning ‘early rising’). The name appears in Scotland by the end of the 18th century, possibly sometimes from England but mostly no doubt from Ireland.

English: habitational name chiefly from Earley (Berkshire), but Earnley (Sussex), Arley (Warwickshire), Areley Kings (Worcestershire), and Upper Arley (Worcestershire) may also have contributed to the surname. All five placenames are derived from Old English earn ‘eagle’ + lēah ‘woodland clearing’.
