3.  Robert W. Barnes.  1989.  Baltimore County Families, 1659-1759.  Genealogical Publ. Co., Baltimore, MD (Broderbund CD-195):
p. 114 CLARK, ABRAHAM, transp. to Md. c. 1654 or 1658/9, was in Balto. Co. by March 1662/3 when he assigned 200 a. called Nashes Creek (that he had from John Collett) to Thomas Muntross; later [actually, earlier] Walter Dickenson conv. him 450 a. Spring Neck; d. by 7 Dec. 1676 when admin. bond was posted by Miles Gibson with Thomas Long and John Arding; est. inv. on 11 Dec. 1676 by Arding and John Boring, and val. at 26,714 lbs. tob.; est. admin. in 1686 by Miles Gibson who stated that Clark's w. Sarah had also died; had iss.: MARY, m. by 11 June 1694 William Hollis; ELIZABETH, m. by Sept. 1684 William Wilkinson...

p. 691 ...William [Wilkinson] was twice m.; 1st. by Sept. 1694 to Elizabeth, heir of Abraham and Sarah Clark...
Barnes certainly makes a lot of typos with his dates.  He made another one in the entry for Nicholas CORBIN.  I'm going to go with 1676 (two out of three) for the death date of Abraham (and the "death by" date of Sarah).  Mary was obviously married to William by 1690, not 1694, so she must have been born bef. 1675.  I certainly would like to know the basis of the "married by" date for Elizabeth and which one is correct.  Anybody know?
