John Hollinger (1775-1844) Family

Does anybody have info on the 3 sons of John Hollinger who died in 1844 in Stark Co. Ohio? He lived in Columbiana Co. for a number of years prior to that. According to the 1820 census he had 3 sons. His will names a son John, but doesn't list names of his other children. It's likely one was William as he is named repeatedly in the will, but doesn't give relationship. An obit on this forum lists a J.M. Hollinger born in Columbiana Co. who died in Leon, Iowa in 1922. He is a Jacob Hollinger, son of John Jr. A William Hollinger is also living in Leon in 1880, matches up as an son of John Sr. who was born in 1775 in Lancaster Co. Pennsylvania. I am especially interested in the 3rd son of John Sr. & wife Catherine. My ancestor is a Phillip C. Olinger born about 1808 who married Mariah Feltenberger. I can find no Olinger who fits for Phillip's father. People have been trying for over 50 years. Feltenberger legal documents named a Phillip Hollinger as a witness. I've wondered if the spelling of the name could have been changed for my Phillip. He lived in Jefferson Co. Ohio in the 1830's. The Hollingers lived in the extreme southern part of Columbiana Co., on the Jefferson Co. border. Leon Iowa, where some of these Hollingers moved, is less than 20 miles from where my Olinger family lived.
