Locating Old Quilts

I'm new on here, as of today! I love quilting and recently, I've been interested in learning more about Texas quilts and their makers. My mother passed away in April and we took her "home" to Roxton, Texas for burial. Her mother quilted a lot from about 1905-1955 in that area. I'm not sure this is possible, but how do I trace any quilts that she made?
When she passed away in 1960 in Roxton, all of her quilts and many of her personal home items were taken by my mother's sisters-in-law. She may have signed her quilts and that's the only way I would know to trace them.
Does anyone here know where I would start this search? Thank you for any help you can give!
