Hollenback in Swan Hill, Wimmera

Classification: Query
Surnames: Hollenback, Fenton, Carey/Carney
I'm looking for information on and descendants of David Hollenback. David was b abt 1832 in Indiana, USA. He migrated to CA then to Australia after 1860.

In 1903 he visited in Indiana, USA and gave his address as Omeo, Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. From 1908 - 1914 he was on the voters' list at Swan Hill, Wimmera, Victoria, Australia. This was his 1914 listing: Hollenbach, David, Wood Wood, Pensioner, Male.

David had a son William Noble Hollenback b abt 1870:
Name: Wm Noble Hollenback Death Place: Omeo, Victoria Age: 28 Father's name: Hollenback David Mother's name: Cath Carney Registration Year: 1898 Registration Place: Victoria Registration Number: 4195 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1870. I don't know if William Noble ever married or had children.

Another son was Jonathan: Name: Jno Hollenback Death Place: Omeo, Victoria Age: 19 Father's name: David Mother's name: Cath Carey Registration Year: 1891 Registration Place: Victoria Registration Number: 11833 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1872.

A daughter named Josine b abt 1872 married William Fenton:
Name: Josine Hollenback
Spouse Name: Wm Fenton
Marriage Place: Victoria Registration Place: Victoria Registration Year: 1892 Registration Number: 291

Josine died: Name: Josine Fenton
Death Place: Omes Hof, Victoria
Age: 22
Father's name: Hollenback Davi
Mother's name: Cath Carey
Registration Year: 1894 Registration Place: Victoria Registration Number: 14542
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1872

David returned for a visit to Indiana, USA in 1903 to claim land he'd inherited from his father. I found a lawsuit filed against his sister who had sold it, and a passenger list showing he returned to Australia.

David must have had another daughter besides Josine, as written in an Indiana article there is this quote about his visit: "about 1902 or 1903, when he returned to Sullivan county, bringing with him his married daughter and her two small girls, about 8 and 10 years old. His son-in-law did not return with him. While here, his daughter's husband, living in Australia, became ill and she returned to that country ahead of her father, who followed her and his two granddaughters a year or two later, or shortly after 1904. He lived there for several years upon his return to Australia, where he died in about 1910 or 1912, at a very advanced age, and is buried in Australia."

I'd like to have any information about David's death and burial, the burial place of the 3 children whose death record is above, and any information about the daughter who visited in Indiana with him. I don't have access to any Australia census records, so I'm not sure how many children David had.

Any help with this family will be greatly appreciated.
