"The United States law requiring full payment at the time of purchase and registration of any land. to help encourage sales and make land more affordable, Congress reduced the minimum price of dollar per acre and the minimum size that could be purchased. Most of this land for sale was located on the frontier which was then ""The West"". This Act was good for many Americans, but it was also over used by wealthy investors."
1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land

Age 2

A United States law to provide financial relief for the purchasers of Public Lands. It permitted the earlier buyers, that couldn't pay completely for the land, to return the land back to the government. This granted them a credit towards the debt they had on land. Congress, also, extended credit to buyer for eight more years. Still while being in economic panic and the shortage of currency made by citizens, the government hoped that with the time extension, the economy would improve.

Name Meaning

1 English and Scottish: occupational name for a weaver, early Middle English webbe, from Old English webba (a primary derivative of wefan ‘to weave’; compare Weaver 1). This word survived into Middle English long enough to give rise to the surname, but was already obsolescent as an agent noun; hence the secondary forms with the agent suffixes -er and -ster.2 Americanized form of various Ashkenazic Jewish cognates, including Weber and Weberman.
