Help needed translating a German marriage record

I am having difficulty understanding the spelling of the wife's surname, Catherine.  Can someone look at the marriage record and tell me how it is spelled?  Record is on left side of page and the 6th marriage: 

Haldenwang: 4 Oct 1784, Joseph Hegger married Catherine Bum?

I am also wondering if it gives the village she is from or if it indicates she is from Haldenwang.

Thank you very much!

Her family name is Bomßin, the old female form of Bomß.

The text states that she is "from the village" (ex pago). Since typically marriages were in the town of the bride and there are numerous other entries with the same formulation it is to be assumed that she is from Haldenwang.
