Question: What happened in 1880 at the bottom of the page? emigrated? Is this why Philipp and Friederike's death dates are not entered?
Answer: Yes, the family emigrated ("Ausgewandert") in 1880, which explains why there are no death dates for the parents. Given that "America" is written for at least child 3 (and one might argue that "America" is written in such a way that it applies to the entire family on this page), they probably emigrated to America in 1880.

Arrival Date:10 Mar 1880
Arrival Port:New York, New York, USA Comment: It was not unusual for the husband/father to emigrate first, get settled, and then have the rest of the family follow.
