Hi,

John Thomas was born 1st of March 1888 in Swansea ,Wales.

Living with his brothers and sisters in Baltimore , Maryland on the 1920 census he was single and working as a stevedore .

Than we lose track of him...what became of him ?  Can you find him ?

Have you looked for obituaries for his siblings? They might mention his whereabouts.

(I see by your tree at ancestry that you have death dates for all the children except Thomas.)
