Lydia's Sampler

Thanks to cousin Robert C. Fulton, we are now in possession of the above photo of a
"sampler" done by Lydia Ruth Potts on 8 July 1857 that lists family members by initials. We understand all the initials except the first set JMP which may be a sibling we did not know about. On the bottom row are James William Ludwick and Thomas Edward Ludwick who were the twin sons of J. Robert Ludwick (J.R.L.) and Amanda Balsora (Potts) Ludwick (A.B.L.) and were born and died in 1857. Amanda was Lydia Ruth's sister.
