I found a reference to the Rigveda mantras for several Gods and Goddesses
in Vamadeva Shastri(David Frawley)'s book “The wisdom of the ancient
For e.g.  For Ushas he refers to Rig Mantra VII.75 and also VI.76, where
the  Rishi is Maitravaruni Vasishta.
There are references to Saraswathi Mantras in Mandala VI.61 for which the
Rishi is Bahraspatya  Bharadwaja
But I could not find references in his book to the other Goddesses
you mentioned.

Hope this gives a lead.

Om Namo Narayanaya,
