According to the Timeline in Logos 5, Ussher had dated the flood at 4142 BC: "4142 BC  The flood (Ussher)"

I assume this is referring to James Ussher (1581-1656) who has dated the creation at 4004 BC and the flood at 2349 BC (see Annals of the World pp. 17-19).

If you click on the event name in the Timeline tool it will show the resource locations where this event is drawn from.  For this event, the listings are all drawn from The International Bible Encyclopedia, Revised.

If you click through to ISBE (if you have ISBE) you will see that three Ussher dates (creation, flood, and a modified creation date) have been compounded incorrectly into this single instance. An update to these events should appear in the next resource update for timelines.
