Little information is available on Maria, however, her parents are:

Father: Peter Lentz. Peter was born in 1751 or 1752, and is the son of John Lentz & Catherine (Culp) Mills.

It should be noted that the "(2)" behind his name indicates that his parents (Charles Nathaniel & Elizabeth Mills) gave 2 of their children the same name, and in this case, this is the 2nd of the 2 John Baptist Mills children. The first John Baptist Mills died in infancy.
