Jacob Kauffman 1763-1815

Problem - I have Maria Kauffman, married to Peter Berger.  This Jacob has a daughter Maria Sarah Berger, she never married and is buried here with Jacob and Elizabeth.  Did they have two daughters with the name Maria?  Was Maria used like Johannes..  or are these NOT the parents of Maria who married Peter Berger?
