Can you give a URL for the page, so we can get comparison words?

Thankfully I don't think it says  anything too despicable.

The link you've given just goes to a page in someone's tree. Here is the link to the page :

I think it says "lodging out" and there's a possible  explanation on this RootsChat thread :

Edit - think the word below is gaming.

I get the impression that he was lodging out in the open air and may have been bagging game.  Could well have been a poacher perhaps?

Today's equivalent is most likely to be 'of no fixed abode.'

‘gaming’ could mean gambling, I had a young lad arrested and fined for a gaming offence, playing cards for money on the street.
