What a wonderful find! Do keep us posted on both the restoration and the quilters search, what a treasure.

You might also try the quilt museum in LaConner
https://www.qfamuseum.org/

Mostly my quilt ladies were here on the western side, but they of course did know folks and have relations on the eastern side of the state too. I'll bring it up next Tuesday.

Kemp is a pretty common name out here... Bellingham the wrong side (western) but Metaline Falls more likely to go with the otehrs.

edit if in time: My aunt's second husband after her first passed, was a Kemp!

8. Juanita Rogich
9. Erma Samms
10. Mildred Ritter

13. GHL
14. Laura Clarke
15. Garnet(?) Jeeters
16. Gretchen Driesel (? Last name)
17. Emma Badley
18. Bells

20. Dol Hall ( ?first)
21. Florence Graham
22. Eunice Ward

I love the stories that come when you do geneological research.

#8 on your list, Juanita Rogich, apparently had a son, Edwin “Ted” Rogich, born in 1924 in Metaline Falls, WA, who died in 2008. According to his obituary at Find A Grave, he founded a neon sign company in Las Vegas and in “1959, he collaborated with Betty Willis to create the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign that has become the iconic representation of Las Vegas throughout the world.” https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/...dwin-l.-rogich
Now we know we can thank the son of a quilter for that iconic sign!

#1 is Alma Nauditt. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/...alma-d-nauditt
She is buried at the Metaline Cemetary (as are #6 Maggie Siegel and Juanita Rogich). Juanita Rogich maiden name was Samms, so Erma Samms was probably a relative.

Our power is out bc of a major thunderstorm that just went through so my research is on my phone only for the moment, but that is what we were thinking with regards to Erma Samms. Iíve done quite a bit of ancestry research and I love the find a grave site. So much info in one place. Just need to find a contact in Metaline Falls to determine if this was a friends group or a quilting group also, or a school group etc. Would also love to find a living relative of someone on this quilt. Iím sure I will. Just getting exciting.

What an exciting find. Try some of the other names to see if they appear in the same locations or close by. IF they do then you know you are on the right track. Best of luck in your search. Beautiful quilt.

I sent out the list to my Tuesday group ladies. You just never know. My grandfather's second wife was from a huge family -- if the quilt had been from Yakima and there were Hyatts on it -- well, hey we are related by marriage

Thank you--I will be trying to contact someone in Metaline Falls --hopefully a historical society or church or someplace that might be able to identify these women. Coming at it from different directions, will hopefully bring results.
