Glencora Olivia Franklin b 11 Feb 1898

Classification: Query
My great aunt Glencora Olivia Franklin arrived in New York from Barbados on 9 Oct 1922 and beyond that I can find no trace of her. She had qualified as a midwife in April that year at the age of 24.Does anyone know any more? I have been unable to find (on Ancestry) any marriage or death records. If anyone has any information or ideas, I'd like to hear them! Many thanks.
