Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 270, Prairie Township, White County, Indiana

"T. HEAD was born in Rush County, Indiana, in 1833, and is the son of SIMON C. and MALINDA (POAGE) HEAD - the former a native of New Hampshire, and born in 1801, and the latter of Kentucky, and born in 1807. Until fourteen years of age, our subject worked on the home farm, and attended school, and since then he has been chiefly in the dry goods business. In 1855, at Homer, Champaign County, Illinois, he married MISS KATE WARNER, daughter of JOSEPH WARNER, a farmer and a native of Ohio. MR. HEAD pursued his calling as dealer in dry goods in Champaign City and Homer, and then came to Marshall County, Indiana, where he engaged in the lumber business for twenty months, and next, in the spring of 1861, resumed the dry goods business at Zionsville (Indiana), and in 1863 at Battle Ground (Indiana), and then farmed for two years; in October, 1876, he came to Brookston (White County, Indiana), where he now carries a general assortment of merchandise, boots, shoes, notions, groceries, etc.,etc., valued at $30,000. MR. HEAD is a Freemason, and he and wife are members of the Christian Church. Of their eleven children, the living are named - CHARLIE E., OLLA, CORA, JESSIE, ORIN, ADA, PEARL, ROY, UHL T.; the deceased were named OTIS and EFFIE."
