You didn't say but is this him:
Robert Horton 6 May 1913- 28 Sep 1997 Kalamazoo
366-16-4400 iss MI
last ben: 49001 Kalamazoo, NI

Since you are dealing with modern people (as genealogy goes) you can always send for his birth certificate - you don't need the exact date to get one - just give them an estimate
As you can see in 1920 they were Horton and by 1930 they were Poth - I would assume they weren't officially adopted just claimed by Eman - or the enumerator was too lazy to write another name down

Hope it helps some:
