I agree there is no official designation. When looking up some Plauche's I noticed an informal (1) put next to some names and thought that may be what the census taker was using to state something like, "I think I see a slightly darker complexion that white here and one of the two parents also have a slightly darker complexion so the child is not mulatto but not 100% white either". I agree completely with your assumption barbadosdiva.
