His death certificate says he was buried at Bridgeport. I'm not sure if that would be Bridgeport East or West, but as East seems to have the older section, I have tried it there. If you have any additional information, please let me know and I will be happy to make any additions or corrections.

Son of William and Easter Bartlett
