This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Moses Eaton was one of the best documented stencilers of New England. He was born 19 June, 1753, son of Jeremiah Eaton and Elizabeth Woodcock, and grandson of William Eaton and Mary Starr of Dedham, Massachusetts. Eaton moved to Hancock, New Hampshire in 1792 from Needham, Massachusetts, near the port of Boston where European fashion first arrived. One of these fashions was imported wallpaper, which many affluent families there could afford to buy. For those who could not, wall stenciling of the Moses Eaton type was already in evidence nearby as early as 1778.

Moses Eaton was forty years old at the time of this relocation to New Hampshire, and it is assumed his work there began as soon as he was settled. In the Hancock, Dublin, Peterboro area there are many examples of walls decorated with the same patterns found years later with the original wall stencils retrieved from his attic.

His son, Moses Eaton, Jr., was also a stencil artist.
