Born. ca. March 1847, a son of William W. and Elizabeth Bell Emerson.

"Died at his home near Morning Star Church last Friday afternoon about five o'clock following an illness of several weeks from pneumonia. Mr. Emerson's wife died about ten years ago and since that time has lived most of the time by himself. He was a quiet, inoffensive citizen and had the respect of all who knew him. His wants during his last illness were looked after by the citizens of that community. He was 77 years and one day old. The funeral was conducted in Morning Star church on Saturday afternoon by Rev. C. I. Morgan. Mr. Emerson leaves one brother, Edward Emerson of Luray."
