Martha's sister Rebecca married 1st, a James Thompson, not a Gillespie.
In her sister Elizabeth's will, she is listed correctly as "Martha Gillespie", however, later in this will, her husband is incorrectly listed first as "Hugh Gillespie", instead of John, but this appears to have been corrected later in the will, listing "brother-in-law John Gilespie:
