Biography

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Philadelphia, PA, we find two-year-old Mildred H., daughter of Howard and Caroline Davis, born in Feb 1898, not 1901. They lived next door to her grandparents, William and Hannah Davis, and great-grandmother Sarah Davis.

After attending the 'Friends' School in Philadelphia, Mildred moved to Los Angeles seeking work and became "an American actress who appeared in many of Harold Lloyd's classic silent comedies and eventually became his wife.

On February 10, 1923, she married Harold Lloyd. After their marriage, Lloyd announced that Davis would not appear in any more motion pictures.

She and Harold Lloyd had three children including Gloria Lloyd and Harold Lloyd Jr. Davis was very active in Beverly Hills and as hostess at the Lloyds' estate, Greenacres, where she particularly enjoyed rose gardening. Her brother was actor Jack Davis of Our Gang, later a prominent Beverly Hills physician.

The couple remained very close for their entire life together.

Davis died from a coronary following a series of strokes in Santa Monica, California in 1969" (wikipedia excerpt).
