the error is in the transciption. It does list Martha as spouse to Thomas but the transcriber seems to be unfamiliar with the term daughter in law in how it was used in this case. Always refer to the original.

Sorry, I hadn't seen that transcription.

As Tazzie says, never rely on the transcription, always look at the original.
