The parents of Mária and Anna were Benkõ Mihály (Michael) and Anna nee Kovács. Mihály was age 37 at the birth of Mária, and Anna was 18.

His occupation is stated as uradalmi gazdasagi béres. This means that he was a farmhand in the pay of the domain owner. The term gazda means farmer, and ság means a hand working for the farmer.

Anna nee Kovacs is listed as a housewife. The two were residents of the "Klara májor," which means an estate of the domain. My translations may not be perfect, but I am certain that they capture the meaning, or come close to it.
