A biographical sketch of Emily's father, Dr. John Mederis Yancey, written in the 1890s, says this about his daughter: "Emma Estella survives, and is now teaching the Arkansas class in Liberty College, Glasgow, Ky. She graduated at Hamilton Female College of Lexington, Ky., in June, 1889, and soon after took a course at the National Normal School at Lebanon, Ohio. Her school life occupied a period of six years prior to her normal course, a year and a half of that time at Madison Female Institute, Richmond, Ky."

It appears that after her marriage, Emily was a full time wife and mother. Her husband was farmer Edward VanDeren, and her children were Edward Yancey VanDeren, Sarah Margaret VanDeren and John Medearis VanDeren
