William Daniel Harrington was born in February 1872 in New York to Alexander Harrington and Roxy Ann Waite. He was living with his parents and siblings in Poland, Chautauqua, New York in the 1880 census, where he was listed as "Willie Harrington."

In about 1892, William married Emma Gertrude Wheeler, daughter of Henry Wheeler and Mary Jeanette Stom, and the widow of Eugene F. Pickard. In the 1900 census, William and his family lived in Randolph, Cattaraugus County, New York and William worked as a teamster. In 1910, William and his family lived in Ellery, Chautauqua County, New York, where he worked as a farmer. William, along with Emma and sons Merle and Gerald, were baptized on April 14, 1910 at the Methodist Episcopal Church on Pickard Street in Sinclairville, New York. In 1920, William, Emma, their son Gerald, and William's father Alexander, lived in Portville, Cattaraugus County, New York and William worked as a teamster. William and Emma were living at 216 McKinley Avenue in Jamestown, New York in the late 1920s.

Emma died in January of 1929, and William doesn't appear to be living in that house in the 1930 census. William died on June 7, 1960 in New York. He was buried in Levant Cemetery in Carroll, Chautauqua County, New York.
