Hi, Rachel" - Think you're gonna laugh but what is translated on the 1860 census as "Gawompeed" actually says, "Unoccupied." If you look at the right hand numbers, you'll see the first column is for "dwelling - house - numbered in order of visitation." Benjamin, as the head of household is #550; the next family (on the next page) is the Willingham family and is given #552. SO next to Vashti's name the census taker put number #551 / noted it was unoccupied...that way no one would think he skipped a residence and would go out again to contact that household. (I bet he just screwed up on his numbers and covered himself ?!)
