Surnames: Bauer

I cannot find a grave associated with a Jacob W. Bauer (husband of Magdalene {Karcher} Bauer. I do see records of his birth year being 1830 and documentation that he spent time in a poor house in Erie county, NY as well as in Wyoming county, NY. It looks like he passed away in the Wyoming county poor house in 1921. What would have become of his remains? He has family buried in Pleasant View Cemetery, Dutch Flats, Wyoming county, NY but he's not among them. Would he have been placed on the grounds of the poor house?
