According to a tree on Ancestry Myra's husband was Harry Rubert Carr, and her parents were James F. Musselman & Penelope Burgess.

There is a reference to a Myra Musselman Carr in the NY Times in 1925 here http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html.
It states that she was a sculptor (stone). There is mention of her in the NY Herald as a sculptor as early as 1911, along with an actual photo of her 1st prize winning sculpture. There was also a mention of Myra Musselman Carr in 1938 in the NY Daily Freeman, Kingston where she was part of an art exhibition at Woodstock. She was considered a "..Woodstock artist(s) of the past.."

There is a small bio for Myra here: http://www.askart.com/askart/m/myra_v_musselmancarr/myra_v_musselmancarr.aspx

Hope this helps. Annie
