I know that the Third Avenue Railroad Co. began operations in the 1850s, but I don't know who the owners were in the early years of the company.

Here is a book about the company which would no doubt answer that question.

You were right about the Shakers. They emigrated to the US before the Revolutionary War. The article states that it was Lindenmueller who founded a new "church" and called it the : "Shaker Congregation." Apparently, he meant for the : "Congregation" to meet at his saloon and use beer and wine as: "Holy water." Thus, he attempted to thwart the Sunday laws by claiming that they were interfering with the free exercise of religion, a right granted by the First Amendment.
