The Census Index on Ancestry.com lists Abraham Umpstatt as Abraham WINPOTALL. I found the image long before I found the index entry. I finally searched only on the name Abraham in Montgomery County, Maryland, for 1800, and there it was. The IMAGE shows clearly UMPSTATT if you know what you're looking for, but you can see how someone came up with Winpotall. The handwriting is actually quite lovely, it's just hard to make out.

This image is available online - search WINPOTALL first. If that doesn't work, try Umpstatt, because I will be notifying Ancestry.com of the correct spelling. I don't know how long it will take them to fix it. I do have a copy of the image on file.
