Besides his wife, who was formerly Sarah A. Connor, he leaves seven children, namely: Byron and Albert Headley and Mrs. A. E. Phillips, all of Brock; Stanley Headley, of Kirby; Miss Gertrude Headley, at home; Fred Headley, of Kirby, and Miss Bernice Headley, a student in the Waynesburg High school.
