Handmade Death Certificate

William Martin Kent, died 14 September 1891 in Lake Hopatcong, Morris County, New Jersey.
Accidental drowning.

I found this death certificate from 1891, notable because it is written on a piece of paper instead of the state-issued form.

New Jersey death certificates for this time period look like the certificate below.

Catharine Keating, died 10 October 1891 in Rockaway, Morris County, New Jersey.
Father: James Shaw.  Mother: Margaret [Hopler].
