So this male (non-noldorin) elf, who wasn't in ME after the destruction of Thrangorodrim, but did live in ME during the War of the Jewels...

... Did he die during the First Age?
(Meaning that his fea came to Valinor and therefore he was 'still around' after the destruction of Thrangorodrim)

That depends upon exactly when you would consider that War of the Jewels commenced ...

Yes, he did die in the First Age in the sense you described.

Good question, Telchar, perhaps even moreso because the answer is no (and that of course rules out Thingol).
