Death record help needed

Death record help needed

I found my first death record match. I was looking for Dortea Corneliusdatter born 1800. line 9 bottom section looks like my relative. Is this page all one date 1887 or does it change to 1888 when the numbers start again?
What are the words before Dortea?
Not sure of all the column headings. I translated a few but couldn't find all the words. Thanks in advance, Carol

One of the words before her given name is Enke.

The column headings are all translated --

Thanks for the link for column headings. I did read that page earlier today but missed the included links for specific years and that is where those different words were that I couldn't find in the 1877 and later.
Google translate says enke is widow, so that would fit.

The year is still 1887. The top half of the page are males, the bottom half are females.

Great, I didn't pick up on the separation of male and female.
Very interesting.
Can you also help with the location which looks the same for birth and residence? Is that a farm name? Also cause of death.
Thank you

The 1900 census is a good source to check for names of farms in Hol, Buskerud. Bønsnæs is one farm name I see in that census in that area.

Cause of death appears to match a word in this list of translations -

Yes, as a 1 yr old in the 1801 census - notice the farm name.

I'm greatly appreciative of the links to help me.
I figured old age would be the cause of death but
did finally locate the word in the list after I maxed the magnification.
The 1801 farm is huge. It gave me lots of work to do.
Thanks once again for your time,
Carol
