Frederick William Evans
His father settled in the United States in 1820, and apprenticed him to a hatter in New York. He was a diligent student in his leisure hours, was attracted by the theories of Robert Dale Owen and Charles Fourier, and after a brief visit to England joined the Shaker community, whose leader he became in the United States.
