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.
