The Mary Wilmot who was married to Miles Oakley was the daughter of John Wilmot and Bridget Waters. Mary d/o Benjamin only had the one husband, she died before him. I can see where the two profiles were merged together.
It may hav been a mistake on my part as mercy has same marriage date for both husbands - there is another marriage date recorded in the bio section 15/7/17679 but I am not clear which husband, perhaps someone else has a clearer picture of this line :(
