    Age 20
    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.

    Age 23
    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

    English (Suffolk and Norfolk): variant of Toothill, primarily a Yorkshire habitational name from any of various places called with Old English tōt-hyll ‘lookout hill’, primarily Toothill in Rastrick (Yorkshire) and perhaps Tootle in Longridge (Lancashire), but also Tuttle Hill in Nuneaton (Warwickshire), and Tothill (Lincolnshire). There are several further minor placenames of this type that may have contributed to the surname. Also occasionally from Tottenhill (Norfolk), which derives from the Old English personal name Totta (genitive Tottan) + Old English hyll ‘hill’.
