>>On the "Marriage Return" document from his marriage to my great-granmother in 1908, however, his father is listed as Jessie Comstock and mother as Emma J Bartlett.<<

This is primary data (unlike data on death cert, which is secondary data). Frank Barlett stated his parentage for the marriage, but wasn't the informant of the data on his death cert.

The 1910 Census for your Frank Bartlett cites a previous marriage. You want to fill in the blanks of his life prior to his second marriage in 1908.
