I helped make head cheese about 25 years ago.
I had a person ask me for a recipe here recently. While I didn't have the exact recipe we used, I am posting a head cheese recipe, a Souse recipe & Pennsylvania Scrapple recipe from Great Sausage Recipes. These are real good recipes close to what we used.

I remember we used the cornmeal & gelatin & sage. The best I've ever tasted.We also used the whole hogs head & boiled it down.

Hope these recipes help you Eddie!
