Dorothy Gish Born March 11, 1898, in Dayton, Ohio. Without a father around, Lillian and Dorothy Gish's mother had the two girls on stage at a very early age. The girls and their mother lived a less than glamorous life in seedy hotels and on trains between engagements, but did took whatever roles they could to survive.
