The missing (deceased) Thomas Adams was a painter/glazier, his children were Amelia, Nellie, Jannie & Tom.

The Confectioner was his son Tom (bn 1881)

I have looked closer at the Montgomeryshire Thomas and am not sure it is the same family.  That Thomas shows his father as David whereas 'my' Thomas has the father 'Thomas'.  All very confusing  :)

Llanfyllin is 12 mile walk (14 mile drive) from Oswestry - I don't think thats that far

Llanfechain is a few miles away on the Oswestry side - under 10 miles

None of the online trees I looked at gave a date or address for his death so it could be that they just found a name and age that fitted.  :-\

Could this be Sarah in 1891?
10 Cripplegate Oswestry
Sarah Adams wid 50
Nellie Adams dour 14
John Adams son 11
Tom Adams son 9
Annie Adams dour 6
David Adams son 3
Mary G Peters granddaughter 4 could this be the daughter of Oswald Peters who is presumably Sarah’s son from her previous marriage? Or did she have other children from her first marriage?
All born Oswestry

That is definitely the correct Adams family. 

I am just surprised that I cannot find Thomas Adams being buried in Oswestry, where he was born, married, and all his children were baptised.

I may be wrong, but I am not sure he is the Thomas Adams that died in Montgomeryshire.

Just a thought - if he had something infectious could he have gone into an isolation hospital - if there was one in Llanfyllin that may explain it

Burial
Thomas Adams age 60
5th June 1888
Llanfechain, Montgomeryshire
abode village

In the 1911 census there is also a son, David, aged 23, born Llanfechain
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X726-CC9
He is also on the 1891 census aged 3 born Llanfechain.

Birth David Adams, 2nd q 1888, Llanfyllin 11b 119, mmn Ward

Baptism, 22 April, 1888, David Adams, son of Thomas & Sarah Adams, of Village. Father's occupation, painter.

So it seems to me that the Llanfechain burial is the right one and that Thomas died very shortly after David was born.

If he was ill, he would have gone to one of the Workhouse hospitals. The Oswestry one was at Morda (to the south of Oswestry) and the nearest Montgomeryshire one was at Forden. (close to Welshpool).

Well, I think that is it solved!

I missed the fact that his son David was born in Llanfyllin and not Oswestry so am happy to pursue that connection for where Thomas died.

Thank you all so much for you kind efforts (I am so pleased I found this forum!)  :)

I have just ordered the Death Certificate so will update this post on its arrival.
