The two notes after the list of the nine children refer to the illegitimate children of daughters 8 and 9 above:
First note (daughter 8): NB. Eva Katharina had illegitimately: Wilhelmine, born 13 Jan 1852, died 26 Jan 1852.
Second note (daughter 9): Friederike had illegitimately: Friederike, born 6 Aug 1860, 5:00 pm. Recognized/acknowledged v. Martin, volume II, page 340. [You'll want to find this entry on page 340 in volume 2 to see if this child's paternity is acknowledged by the father.]
Note: I am unable to decipher the word in the baptismal column for child no. 5.

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.

Robert Seal: Note that in this death certificate his age of 58 is about 10 years too young. Born in October 1834, Philipp would have been two months shy of turning 69 years old in October 1903.
