- In speaking of Mr. Charles H. SINCELL, whose death from heart disease
occurred on the 23d of last month, at Oakland, Md., the "Republican"
of that place says: "The deceased was born on the 26th of July, 1838,
in Frederick city, Md. His father died when he was but four years of
age and his mother when sixteen. He was foreman in the coach factory
of Messrs. HOOD & HANE for eighteen years, and in 1874 came to Oakland
and engaged actively in the carriage and wagon and general blacksmithing
business with the Messrs. BROWNING Bros. The following year he became
sole proprietor and continued in the business up to the day of his death.
He was a prominent, useful citizen, loved by all who knew him. He was
a member of the Lutheran Church, and for many years an efficient member
of the Evan. Lutheran Church Council. He was a faithful humble christian,
exemplary as a man and as a christian. For the last several years he was
a great sufferer at times, but he patiently and submissively bore all. He
leaves a wife and eight children to mourn his loss. The funeral was the
largest ever seen in Oakland though the weather was inclement.
- Mr. Andrew K. SHRIVER, a widely-known and much respected citizen of Carroll
county, died suddenly at his residence, at Union Mills, Saturday morning,
aged 82 years. He was related to the numerous SHRIVERS in Carroll,
Frederick, and Allegany counties and in Baltimore city. He was a brother
of Mr. Joseph SHRIVER, president of the First National Bank of Cumberland,
uncle to Mr. J. Alexander SHRIVER, of Baltimore city, and Senator SHRIVER,
of Carroll county, and cousin to Gen. Edward SHRIVER, formerly of this city
but at present water registrar at Baltimore.
- The sudden death of Mr. William J. TUCKER at his residence, on South Market
street, at the time of our going to press on Saturday, makes the sixth
occurrence of the kind within the last ninety days. He complained of a
slight pain in his side at about noon on that day and laid down for a short
nap thinking to overcome this feeling by a little sleep. When one of his
daughters passed through the room at about three o'clock she noticed an
unnatural look on the face of her father and made known her fears to her
mother, who upon going to the room found her husband dead. Medical
assistance was called in but Death had too strong a hold on his victim to
be snatched of his prey by any mortal aid. As was indicated by the
surroundings, he died without a struggle. He was in the 70th year of his
age and leaves a wife and three grown children, a son and two daughters.
The deceased was a native of this city, and up to within twenty years ago
followed the occupation of contractor and builder, at which time he retired
from active life having amassed considerable property. He was an active
member of the Methodist Episcopal church. The funeral took place on Tuesday
morning at 10 o'clock.
- Miss Julia Lee FINNEY who has been a sufferer from consumption for a long
time, died at the residence of her grandparents on South Market street
Tuesday evening, at nine o'clock. Miss FINNEY was in the nineteenth year
of her age and was a prepossessing young lady, beloved by all who knew her.
She was engaged to be married in the spring, not believing her disease would
prove fatal, and during the long weary hours of her confinement passed the
time in preparing for the event by making dresses, etc., several of which
she completed. The silk dress, made for the marriage occasion, will no
doubt prove her burial habiliment. She leaves a sister and two aged grand-
parents, who looked upon her as their child, to mourn their loss. Funeral
this afternoon at three o'clock.
- Elizabeth SMITH / Sister Mary RAPHAEL, one of the best-known Sisters of
Charity in this country, died Sunday night at St. Joseph's Academy, near
Emmittsburg, this county. Some months ago the fiftieth anniversary of her
becoming a religious was celebrated, and testimonials of the respect in which
she was held were sent from her former pupils, from sisters of the order, and
the clergy in all parts of the country. She spent the greater part of her life
at St. Joseph's Academy, and was directress of the school for many years, only
leaving that position at the close of the last session. Her fine intellect,
polished address and sympathetic nature, as well as her long service in the school,
had endeared her to an unusually large number of those who had been her pupils,
many of whom reside in Baltimore. She never ceased to manifest an interest in
them long after they had left the institution. She was severely injured by a
fall a few months ago.
Her family name was Miss Elizabeth SMITH. She was a cousin of the late Dr. SMITH,
of New Orleans, and of Mother Euphemia, of St. Joseph's Academy. She has other
relatives in other religious sisterhoods.
