Can You Read It?

This partial census entry comes from the 1880 Census for Walker Township, Hancock County, Illinois.

It took me forever to find them in the online index although searching the actual census was not difficult as the township is rural and this family did not move around very much.

Any ideas on the last name of the head of household? Regular readers of my blog and Casefile Clues will probably recognize the last name, but try to pretend you've never read anything about these people anywhere else.
