American actress from silent films. Her husband James Blyler appeared with her in some of her films with Harold Lloyd. After leaving films, as a song and dance and acting team, they were very successful in vaudeville. They married in NYC in 1920. After her husband's 1924 death, she was earning (1926) $1,000 per week as a single act in vaudeville. In 1927, she married aviator/actor/musician, Ron Wilson (1900-1969). After suffering a stroke at their home (1931), she was taken to the exclusive Christian Science Hospital where she died 25 days later.|
Some sources give her death date as August 28th but the San Francisco funeral home record (similar to a death certificate) says August 27th. Absent a birth record or contemporary newspaper birth announcement, her birth information comes from a 1925 ship's passenger manifest and the funeral home death record. Along with the 1900 and 1910 US Census's. they give Pennsylvania as her birthplace. The 1931 death record gives a birthday of January 2nd and the 1925 passenger manifest says January 3rd (Tarentum, PA). Most sources incorrectly say she was born in Kentucky.
