Emerson was the son of Charles Hasty and Electa Goodenough Eaton. His family moved to Lucas County, Ohio, in 1843. He seems to have spent much of his adult life in bee keeping, but found time to translate Virgil’s 4th Georgic, in addition to writing Gospel songs. His works include:

  1. Among the Children Glad and Fair
  1. Seeking for Me
