Bert grew up in Haverhill and Groveland, Massachusetts. He lived with his parents until at least the age of 20 (at the time of the 1930 census).
According to Rebecca Syphers: "Bertram was an only child. He lived in White Plains area of NY. He died at Christmas time in the early 60's. His wife was Esther. She later married his best friend Norman Farr (?). They were care givers for Aunt Mill in her old age. Their children: Bertram was born Jan. 30, 1910. Middle name Hollis. I never ever heard him called Bert."
Bob Bates reports, "Bert and Esther lived in Pearl River, NY, with son David and daughter Cynthia in the mid-1950s. Bert was an engineer with the Columbia Broadcasting System in New York City, where he was employed through his sudden and untimely death about 1962."
