Found Relative in Free Colored Census - Now what? (Louisa Durloo/Durlow)

Surnames: Durlow, Durloo, Durloe
Hello Fellow Researchers,

I was so excited to find my 4th great grandmother, Louisa Elvira Durlow/Durloo in the St. Croix Free Colored Census - Christensted Register of Free Colored Women 1831-1832. She is number 372, towards the bottom of the page:

As always, this has left me with additional questions that I am needing some assistance with.

1) What does it say in the "Farve" column? I believe this is race/color, and the Ancestry index says its "Castice," which I believe is an error. Is anyone familiar with these records or abbreviations that can provide some insight?

2) There is a date of 13 Feb (?) 1827. I believe this is an emancipation date? My big question here is - Now what? Are there other records I can go to to get more information about this?

Thank you greatly, in advance, for any and all replies!
