  FMG ('Milnes-Gaskell') shows that Nathaniel married twice: Elizabeth (b c1660, d 13.12.1689) then Sarah (bur 04.05.1709) with Elizabeth mother of Arthur, Rebecca & Sarah. BLG1952 shows only the marriage to Sarah Wilson, showing her as mother of Rebecca, Sarah & Elizabeth. TCP (Sempill) identifies the mother of Sarah as Nathaniel's 2nd wife, Sarah Wilson. FMG (vol 1, MS132 ('Jones-Mottershead', p300) & MS133 ('Gaskell', p302) show a 3rd wife with the latter confirming that Sarah Wilson was the mother of Nathaniel's daughters.
