  • Daniel Barham, Jr.
  • Born: Sept 5, 1937
  • Married: Shirley Ann Bennett of Annapolis, Md, on Sept 27, 1959
  • Children:
    Daniel Barham, III born: Sept 12, 1960
    David Barham born: Sept 12, 1960 (stillborn)

Danny, Shirley, Sammy and I now reside in Conway, Arkansas, after spending most of our lives in the Washington, DC, - Baltimore, MD, corridor.

Shirley and I both spent much of our careers with major automotive companies in the Washington, DC, area, I as an Area Service Manager for Chevrolet Motor Division of General Motors and Shirley as a Receptionist for Volkswagen of America. I finished my career as an Automotive Consultant and retired in 2000. Shirley was employed as the Administrative Assistant (Team Mom) for Women's Basketball at the United States Naval Academy. She loved her position there but, after struggling with the decision for several months, retired in December of 2003.

Daniel Barham, III, was born with Ataxia, a form of Cerebral Palsy. While Daniel resides with his parents he manages to maintain a reasonably normal lifestyle in spite of his handicap (Speech and hand coordination). In 2002 Daniel acquired a little Lhasa Apso puppy and named it Samson, soon to be "Sam" or Sammy". Sammy has won the hearts of the entire family and, essentially, runs the household.

My hobbies and pastimes are photography (now digital), writing short stories of fiction and non-fiction (although never published), gardening, bass fishing, genealogy, computers (digital imagery, etc.) and reading history and mystery novels. Shirley is also a genealogist and her database is outstanding.

Update: Our family moved to Conway, Arkansas, in June of 2005, looking for a retirement community that was less congested than the Washington - Baltimore corridor. Conway is a small college town of 50,000, nestled in central Arkansas, twenty miles north of Little Rock. By Christmas of that year we had settled into the slower, more relaxed lifestyle.
