Numbers 36:11

וַתִּהְיֶינָה מַחְלָה תִרְצָה וְחָגְלָה וּמִלְכָּה וְנֹעָה בְּנוֹת צְלָפְחָד לִבְנֵי דֹדֵיהֶן לְנָשִׁים

Machlah, Tirtza, Chaglah, Milka and Noa, the daughters of Tzelophchad, were married to their uncles’ sons.

The order of Tzelophchad’s daughters is given differently here than it is elsewhere. Rashi cites the Talmud (Baba Basra 120a) that they are normally listed according to their wisdom. Here, it lists them by age because it discusses their marriages and they married in order from oldest to youngest.
