Charles Bart Bartlett, 80, former editor of the Vernal Express and early settler of Ashley Valley, died in a Salt Lake hospital Sunday at 8 a.m. of a heart ailment.

He was born August 27, 1869, in Mountain Dell, Salt Lale County, a son of Charles Claymore and Anna Katrina Jensen Bartlett. In 1879 he came with his parents to Ashley Valley.

While in Vernal he was an active member and officer in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. For a time he was stake clerk and a counselor to the stake president. A resident of Tridell since moving from Vernal, Mr. Bartlett was presiding elder for the former LDS branch in Tridell and was bishop of the former Liberty Ward which was organized from the branch.

He serviced two LDS missions to New Zealand and during the second was mission president three and a half years. He was a member of the Uintah Stake High Priest quorum at the time of death.

A number of years ago Mr. Bartlett and John Merkley owned and edited the Vernal Express. He continued for a time after selling his interests.

He married Margaret Watt in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. She died last year.

Mr. Bartlett is survived by a son, George W. Bartlett, Tridell; seven grandchildren, two brothers, Ashley Bartlett, Fontana, California and Ross Bartlett, Salt Lake City; three sisters, Mrs. Nellie Merkley, Tridell and Mrs. May B. Henderson and Mrs. Sarah Bingham, Vernal.
