You'll need to provide a link to the census, or the profile where it can be found.

On the  original document,it appears to be Mary or May or perhaps,Mercy,  The transcription is obviously bad.
by David Hughey G2G Astronaut (1.6m points)
I believe you may be looking at line 89, Mary or May wife of William Meadow. The relevant line here is line 94, Dump (or Oump) wife of Samuel Meadow

I have looked up this family's neighbors on the same page and it seems like enumerator has written down names that are similar sounding but not quite right like "Muriel" for Myrtle".
