    I cant see all of the names well, but...
    I found four of the women living in Howard Co. Arkansas in 1930.
    Two of them are neighbors living in the town of Dillard, Nelie Copeland and Addie Bradford.

    I found two of them living in Hempstead Co. Arkansas in 1930.

    Maybe sometime in the 30's they all ended up in Howard Co.

    Your blocks could be a set of presidents blocks... Maybe you could contact a quilt guild in Howard Co and see if they have any records they could search for these ladies

    I just came across this thread and noticed your photo. I bought some blocks off eBay that have the same pattern but no signatures. I thought it was an unusual pattern and still haven't decided what to do with them. Mine are all the same color, plain blue with white centers so they need something. Been considering some embroidery or an applique in the center. Any ideas?
