Below are the obits for Julia Hinckley and her mother, Rosella Hinckley. Glad to oblige. These are copies of the obits from the Brunswick Times Record.

July 6, 1096
"On Monday at her home on Everett street occurred the death of Mrs. Julia Augusta (Hinckley) Yorke, window of the late Jesse Holbrook Yorke, aged 61 years, three months and six days. She was born in Topsham, the daughter of Charles and Rosella (Freeman) Hinckley. A year ago she was operated upon for cancer and for a few months that brought relief, but since last October she had been steadily failing, suffering severely since then. Her husband Jesse Holbrook Yorke died in April, 1905. She leaves an aged mother, two sisters and a brother here in Brunswick, a brother in Boston, five sones, one the pastor of the Congregational church in west Medford, Mass., and the others in business in Gardner, Mass., also one married daughter in Putnam, Conn.
