Ruth must be Vincent's second wife as he is with Albertia in  New York in 1940 along with 3 children. 

1940 us census is online on familysearch.org


I can't give the names of the children as they are likely to be still living

Could this be Bridget taking the children to join Terrence in the US?
Arrived 12 Nov 1872 New York
Departed Queenstown Ireland
Vessel: City of Paris
Bridget Gallagher 30 wife
Patrick Gallagher 7 child
Anna Gallagher 5 child
Roseanna Gallagher 1 infant
Hannah Gallagher 1 infant

Hannah could be Nora

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957, on Ancestry but the original is at the National Archives
