Ruth Millage, b.1902-3, NYC Cancer Hospital patient

I am not related in any way to the names in this article. Just thought someone might find this information useful.

In an extract from an article in today's NY Times about the 1887-90 New York Cancer Hospital on Central Park West between 105th and 106th Streets ---

The 1915 [hospital] census recorded 48 patients, including James Jordan, 47, a farmer from Windham, Ohio, and William Goggin, 54, a coffee roaster from Brooklyn. Most were middle-aged, but the patients also included Florence Moriarty, 5, who lived just a few blocks south at 14 West 93rd, and Katharine Wilkerson and Ruth Millage, both 13 and from upstate Barton, N.Y. The 1920 census showed that Ruth Millage had returned to Barton and was a teacher, living with her parents and three brothers; Katharine Wilkerson could not be traced.
----------------------------

Does anyone posting here know more about Ruth Millage of Barton, NY, who seems to have recovered from cancer ? Did she marry and have children ? What happened to her parents and 3 brothers ?
