Steven, I just found this. From the 1901 census, there was a John Eaton at Matramane, Castlegregory, Killiney Parish.
He was 44 years old, married and a boat builder by trade. I don't have any details as I only copied the index. I rented the micro film from my local LDS library. Jeremiah King Co Kerry Past & Present has John listed (the only Eaton) and added the following: Symon Eaton was granted Ballenruddrie and Illanamin, in Clanmorris, 489 acres, rent L7.
Good luck & good hunting!

Steve, a Julia Eaton, Castlegregory, died 1973. From a Castlegregory Newsletter dated 1973(usually came out at Christmas time). Have you written to the priest at St. Mary's? All the dates & events are indexed now and it's really easy to find an item. Don't forget to enclose a return envelope and a check for his time & the postage.
Take care, - Helen

My family tree has many Eatons who all came from Castlegregory. Left for the USA and later returned before passing away in Castlegregory. Alice Julia and Nance are the three that I knew best. Gerald
