My post copied over from that

there are a number of trees on Ancestry, some quoting each other as a source. They all seem to agree that he died 20.6.1895 in Mt Crawford, South Australia

One of them has transcribed an obituary in which it states

"He leaves a widow, five sons, five daughters; and forty five grandchildren."

Many of the trees have followed their own specific line. As no doubt you have spent many hours/months and possiby years on your research, to tell us what you 'don't' know would be helpful.
