Daniel married Mary Ann Engel Harrington, on 19 December 1890. Mary Ann had lived in Palmyra Michigan. They had eleven children.

"Daniel B. Harrington, a progressive agriculturist of Ogden township, was born in that township on 24 June 1864. He is the son of James and Catherine Bolton Harrington, the former of whom was born in Canada in 1811 and the latter in Pennsylvania in 1829. The father, who was a farmer by vocation, came to Michigan in 1837. And was here married several years later. Two children were born to the parents - Daniel and Adie (Addah Elzina), who married William Marshall, of Adrian township, and has three children, Hal, in the insurance business in Adrian, Vera and Ellsworth. The father was a staunch Republican in politics, a member of the Victorsville United Brethren Church and a prominent citizen in the community. His death occurred in 1897 and his widow passed away in 1906.

Daniel B. Harrington, received his educational training at the Victorsville schools and the Blissfield High School. Until he was twenty-six years of age he worked for his father, and then purchased his present farm of seventy-seven acres. Mr. Harrington devotes his particular attention to the breeding of swine and winter fattening of cattle, which brings him a goodly income. Since taking charge of the place he has remodeled the barn and made other important improvements.

In the matter of politics he has been a life-long member of the Republican party, and as such has been the recipient of many official honors. He has served as town clerk, was justice of the peace for ten years, and now is the incumbent of the office of supervisor. Fraternally he is affiliated with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows at Blissfield, and the Grange at Victorsville. On May 31, 1890, was solemnized the marriage of Mr. Harrington and Miss Mary Engel, daughter of Thomas and Margaret Staddler Engel, of Palmyra. To this union have been born nine children:"
