Fifteen-year-old Emory accidentally drowned in the Trinity River at the Bazette Crossing after jumping in with other boys during an Independence Day gathering. In order to locate his body, a black gentleman had suggested that bales of alfalfa hay be floated out because they'd eventually circle around his body. The method worked.
His obituary can be found in a Corsicana, Texas, newspaper dated July 5, 1934.
On the 1930 census, his occupation was newsboy.
NOTE: Earnest Ladon Bridger was his stepfather for the last two years of his life.
