Jesse Brain Mining Death 1897.pdf


Charles Frederick Adams (56) of The Ruffit Littledean was the fourth of a family of brothers to be killed in the industry. Edwin was killed at Foxes Bridge, Edgar in the oil industry in America and Rowland at the New Fancy. Added to this tragic sequence is that fact that Mrs Adams' father Mr Jesse Brain of Cinderford was killed at Foxes Bridge and her brother Mr James Brain, at Brywreath Colliery, South Wales.

Whilst intrigued by the story could any one is there other evidence to support the death of Edwin Adams as one of the brothers of The Ruffit Littledean.
The other brothers tie in with my descendants but not Edwin.
Any help who be very much appreciated.
