Harlem Township 1827 Personal Property Tax List

This image comes from part of the "B" section of the 1827 Personal Property Tax List from Delaware County, Ohio, which I scanned while at the Family History Library a month ago.
The second to the last name on this page is an ancestor of my wife. The name before him is Daniel Bennets and the name after him is either Ira or Iva Bennets.
What would you say the name is in between? One hint is that it is not "Plum!"
The last name is actually "wrong" too. For some reason tax collectors are notoriously bad about spelling.
