Age 2

On January 28, 1820, the New Jersey Legislature incorporated the City of Jersey from parts of the Bergen Township. The city would be reincorporated two more times (January 23, 1829 and February 22, 1838) before receiving its official name. Jersey City became part of the new Hudson County in February of 1840.

The Camden & Amboy railroad was completed in 1833. It made transportation between New York City and Philadelphia possible within a 7-hour time-frame. This advancement led to dozens of other companies opening railroad lines during the 1800's.

Name Meaning

English and Scottish: occupational name for a tailor, from Old French tailleur (Late Latin taliator, from taliare ‘to cut’). The surname is extremely common in Britain and Ireland, and its numbers have been swelled by its adoption as an Americanized form of the numerous equivalent European names, most of which are also very common among Ashkenazic Jews, for example Schneider , Szabó , and Portnov .
