Hi, I added the profile number for Elder to your question.

The Social Security Death Index shows that the Elder Emberton who was born on 22 Aug 1900 died in June 1981.  His last SS benefit was sent to Davidson County, Tennessee.("United States Social Security Death Index," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V9D9-53G : accessed 25 February 2016), Elder Emberton, Jun 1981; citing U.S. Social Security Administration, Death Master File, database (Alexandria, Virginia: National Technical Information Service, ongoing).

Amanda Emberton married W. J. Dicken on 18 Nov 1908 in Clay County, Tennessee.(Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002 [Ancestry.com.database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 2008.

When he registered for the World War 1 Draft on 12 Sept 1918, Elder B. Emberton was living in Gallatin, Sumner County, Tennessee. His nearest relative was Amanda Dickins, and he worked for J. R. Tyree.("United States World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KZ65-QLD : accessed 25 February 2016), Elder B Emberton, 1917-1918; citing Sumner County, Tennessee, United States, NARA microfilm publication M1509 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,877,695.)

His Delayed Birth Record issued in 1943 says that he was born on 22 Aug 1900 in rural Jackson County, Tennessee, to Joe Emberton and Amanda Harris, both born in Tennessee.. As evidence he presented the family bible and an affidavit from his mother, Amanda "Dicken".(Tennessee, Delayed Birth Records, 1869-1909 [Ancestry.com. database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2012. Original data: Tennessee Delayed Birth Records, 1869–1909. Nashville, Tennessee: Tennessee State Library and Archives. File No. 205009.)

In 1910, Elder "Emerton", indexed as "Everton," was living in Barren County, Tennessee, as step-son with Will Dicken and his wife Manda (indexed as "Maude").  It was the second marriage for both Will and Manda.  Elder had a brother Beverly, 12, and a probably half-brother Raymond, 0-4-12.("United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M28W-BFZ : accessed 25 February 2016), Elder Everton in household of Will Dicken, Magisterial District 1, Barren, Kentucky, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 14, sheet 7B, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,374,476.)

Tn Feb 1898.("United States Census, 1900," database with images, FamilySearch ("United States Census, 1900," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MSD9-45Z : accessed 25 February 2016), Joe Enberton, Civil District 1, Jackson, Tennessee, United States; citing sheet 3A, family 38, NARA microfilm publication T623 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,241,580.)
