Off the top of my head, no. This sort of detective work can be fun, but it does take a lot of time to look at all the possibilities. And like as not you end up with too many or none at all. But when you're looking for an unaccompanied teenage girl who looks and sounds English (at least to an American) the best place to look is among the Irish. Don't take the assumed age too seriously. That's something which can be very hard to judge, especially with young people who grow and mature at different rates. A 12-year old could look 15, as could a 20 year old.

OK, that's a starting point - if all the girls in your list are in the right age group, spoke good English and looked British. Berta Nillson was Swedish so she's an unlikely candidate, and again she was accompanied to the boat deck and helped into a boat by her fiance. You can assume that the Irish girls might all be mistaken for English, so the key point with them is how did each one get to the boat deck and into a boat? You should be looking for one who was unaccompanied by or had become separated from friends or relatives. In some cases they left quite detailed accounts which make it clear they were never separated from their friends right up to the time they boarded a boat. Those of course you would have to eliminate, as Constance Willard's story involves a girl who was lost and alone and desperate for a helping hand.

Has anyone come across any history on this woman that would indicate how she spent her life?

She lived in Riverside, California, with her mother, on and off thru 1919. She made the society page there quite frequently, and from that we know that she had a decent soprano voice, participated in amateur theatricals, and was an avid bridge player.
