EATON, Cyrns, educator, born in Framingham, Massachusetts, 11 February 1784; died in Warren, Maine, 21 January 1875. He was a son of Benjamin Eaton, a Revolutionary soldier. He received a common school education, studied the classics by himself, and removed in 1804 to Warren, Maine, where he was for forty years a teacher. He served for thirteen years as town clerk, and was five years in the Massachusetts legislature. He became totally blind about 1845, and devoted himself to literature, with the aid of his invalid daughter. He was elected a member of several historical societies, and received the degree of A. M. from Bowdoin in 1848. He published "Annals of Warren" (1851); "Woman," a poem (1854); and " History of Thomaston, Maine" (2 vols., Hallowell, Maine, 1865).
