He served in the Civil War as a Lieutenant.
Son of Solomon & Mary Eaton.

The following bio kindly sent to me by findagrave member goose #47534920:

Solomon was the architect of the historic Middleborough Town Hall. One story says that he passed away before the building was finished ~ and may be one of the “orbs” still present in the building.

While the role of Solomon K. Eaton as architect of Middleborough Town Hall has long been recognized, Eaton’s other contributions to Middleborough are lesser known. One industrial building in Middleborough for which Eaton was responsible was the Star Mill complex built in 1863 for the manufacture of woolen cloth.

Eaton was active in civic affairs, being a church deacon and serving in the state legislature. Another amazing fact of his life is that he volunteered for the Union Army during the Civil War at age 55. His unit saw action in North Carolina.
