OBAMA FAMILY TIMELINE
March 23, 1918 Stanley Armour Dunham born in Wichita, Kansas
Sometime around 1922 Sarah Onyango (aka Sarah Obama, Haja Sara Omar, Sarah Ogwel, etc.), BHO Sr.’s stepmother, was born in Kenya
October 26, 1922 Madelyn Lee Payne (Dunham) is born in Peru, Kansas
June 18, 1934 BHO Sr. born in Kisumu, Nyansa, Kenya, Africa , according to an INS memo; see below for alternate dates of birth and birth location (facts are fungible in the Obama tribe); parents were Onyango Obama and Habiba Akumu, his 4th wife. According to BHO Sr.’s 1959 passport #84764, he was born June 18, 1934.
1936-1938 BHO Sr. born in Kanyadhiang village, Rachuonyo District, Lake Victoria, Kendu Bay, Kenya, a part of the British Empire; Kezia, 67 in 2008, said she was 16 when she met him and he was two years older. Do the math. He was born 6/18/1934 or 6/18/1936, according to records released to Ken Allen under a FOIA request. His son Barry’s birth certificate also falsely states that BHO Sr. was 25 in 1961, but that document is suspected to be a forgery. BHO Sr.’s 1964 passport #5866 gives his date of birth as June 18, 1936.
January 2, 1935 or 1936 Lolo Soetoro born in Bandung, Indonesia, according to Stanley Ann’s passport file; two different years given by his wife; no explanation for discrepancy.
1937 Ruth Beatrice Baker born to Maurice Joseph (Joe) Baker and Ida Ethel Baker of Newton, Massachusetts;
May 5, 1940 Madelyn Lee Payne and Stanley Armour Dunham marry in Kansas
1941 Onyango Obama marries Sarah Ogwel, his fifth wife
November 29, 1942 Stanley Ann Dunham (Obama Soetoro, aka SADOS) born in Wichita, Kansas, according to her passport file; but in Sedgwick, KS, according to copy of her birth certificate within same file; but in St. Francis Hospital in Wichita according to Wikipedia; or on a military base, according to her biographer
1943 Onyango Obama splits the family into two factions and two villages; Habiba Akumu leaves her husband as well as her two sons; BHO Sr. is sent to Maseno Boarding School
1954 Ruth Beatrice Baker graduates from Brookline High School
1955 SADOS and her parents move to Seattle, Washington; they live in an apartment in the Columbia City neighborhood and also at 7529 39th Ave. NE, where SADOS attended Eckstein Middle School in the Wedgewood neighborhood
Mid-1950s BHO Sr. works as an office clerk for Kenya Railway in Nairobi; he meets Kezia at a Christmas dance, although the first link says they knew each other from primary school–the year is either 1955 or 1956 (links differ)
On or around June 1955 BHO Sr. leaves Kenya for parts unknown, according to a Honolulu Advertiser story of June 22, 1962 by John Griffin, which states that by that date he had been away from Kenya for 7 years; this conflicts with the official story that he married Kezia and had several children by her before leaving for Hawaii
1956 SADOS and her parents move to Mercer Island, Washington; they live at 3206 East Lexington Way, apt. 216, where SADOS presumably attends Mercer Island High School; Stanley Armour works in Seattle at Standard-Grunbaum Furniture; Madelyn is an escrow officer in Bellevue
December 1956 BHO Sr. allegedly abducts 16-year-old Kezia Aoko to Nairobi; she’s 16, so she’s born 1940; he’s 18, so he’s born 1938; yet this story says she was 66 in 2009, so would have been born 1943; but WND reports they married in 1954, when BHO Sr. was 18, so he was born ’36. (See entries for their births for more incongruent links.)
1957 Stanley Armour Dunham now works at Doces Majestic Furniture in Seattle
January 1957 BHO Sr. accepts dowry and presumably marries Kezia (aka Kezia Grace Nyandega); they live in Jericho section of Nairobi
1958 Ruth Beatrice Baker (Obama Ndesandjo, aka Ruth Nidesand) graduates from Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts, with a business degree, per Wikipedia and Sally Jacobs biography of BHO Sr.; Ruth works at a “downtown” Boston law firm
April 29, 1959 BHO Sr. obtains a Kenyan passport (#84764) in Nairobi, Kenya. He’s described as born in Alego, Nyanza, 6/18/1934, a clerk, 5’10″ tall, black hair, black eyes, a British subject, citizen of the United Kingdom and colonies. No wife or children were listed on the passport.
Summer 1959 (August 9, 1959 p. 21 INS files) BHO Sr. flies to Hawaii, after arriving in the US through NYC; some say he came earlier and worked for an oil company before going to Hawaii for college; sometime before he began classes at the University of Hawaii Manoa, he clerked “for several years” in Nairobi, according to a September 19, 1959 Honolulu Star-Bulletin story by Shurei Hirozawa; did not get Mboya scholarship, although they were friends, but did get financial assistance from two American women (Elizabeth Mooney Kirk) and Jackie Robinson; SADOS reportedly worked that summer in Chicago, as an au paire, based upon Obama’s book, when she was only 16 (see spring 1960).
About January 1960 BHO Sr.’s daughter Auma Marie (aka Dr. Rita Obama, aka Auma Saidi) born to Kezia, but news stories conflict; one has her born before BHO Sr. left for Hawaii; another says Kezia was 3 months pregnant when he left; this says she’s “roughly” three years older than he.
Spring 1960 SADOS supposedly graduates from Mercer Island High School; the day after graduation, the family supposedly moves to Hawaii, where her father had a new job; yet she may have spent some time the upcoming summer in Chicago, according to Obama’s book and the timing of the release of the movie Black Orpheus (Dec. 1959), which she saw while in Chicago
September, 1960 SADOS begins college at the University of Hawaii, where she allegedly meets BHO Sr. in Russian class
December, 1960 SADOS, pregnant, drops out of U of Hawaii, allegedly
April 12, 1961 An INS memo documents that SADOS made arrangements with the Salvation Army to put her baby (Barry) up for adoption, according to BHO Sr.
August 4 1961 Barry Obama supposedly born to BHO Sr. and SADOS, less than 7 months after parents supposedly married on Maui, both according to the 1964 divorce papers; at the time, BHO Sr. lived at 625 11th Ave. in Honolulu, while SADOS lived at 6085 Kalanianaole Highway in Honolulu, according to Polk directories; birth hospital first given as Queen’s Medical and later story changed to Kapiolani–the probably forged long-form BC says Kapiolani; a biography of the budding “author” by his publisher says that Barry was born in Kenya; this was not the only such story alleging an African birth; David Maraniss says in his book (Obama: The Story) that Barry NEVER lived at Kalanianaole.
End of August, 1961 SADOS borrows a car and visits Susan Botkin Blake at her home on Mercer Island, Washington; Barry is 3 weeks old and very pink
September 1961 Barry Obama lived with mother, Anna Obama, at 516 13th Av E Apt 2 on Capitol Hill in Seattle, WA, according to city directories, only one month after his birth; Anna attended U of WA that autumn per university records; Mary Toutonghi babysat Barry while Anna went to classes; one news story says Anna left Barry in Hawaii with her parents (“she returned to live in Seattle around 1962, after Barack was born in August 1961, leaving her husband, Kenya-born Barack Sr., and his newborn namesake in Hawaii); one of SADOS’s friends who saw the baby described him as “pink”
May 13, 1962 BHO Sr. speaks at Mother’s Peace Rally in Hawaii He lived at 1482 Alencastre Street, Honolulu 16, Hawaii, when he wrote to Tom Mboya about his wife in Nairobi, presumably Kezia, at the same time that other wife SADOS and Barry were living in Seattle
June 22, 1962 BHO SR. off to Harvard via San Francisco; in Massachusetts he supposedly meets and later marries Ruth Nidesand (aka Nides, aka Ruth Beatrice Baker) a school teacher from a wealthy, prominent family on the East Coast, some say New York State; Ruth’s true maiden name unknown until July 2011 (if true)
September 1962 Lolo Soetoro (aka Lolo S. Soetoro; aka Martodijardjo) receives a 21-month study grant, as a non-degreed dept. of Geography student, at the East-West Center in Hawaii through June 1964; BHO Sr. begins at Harvard, p. 21, INS files
December 1962 SADOS has returned to Hawaii and resumes college at U of Hawaii Manoa
June-September 1963 Lolo Soetoro to do “mainland study tour” at Northwestern U in Chicago and Wisconsin U, sponsored by East-West Center in Hawaii, per his passport records; BHO Sr. works for Institute of International Marketing, 44a Brattle St., Cambridge Massachusetts, p. 21, INS files
January 20, 1964 SADOS applies for divorce from BHO Sr.; finalized on March 20, 1964, according to divorce papers published on SCRIBD; BHO Sr. living at 170 Magazine St., Cambridge, Massachusetts; BHO Sr.’s half-brother Omar Okech (aka Onyango Obama) lived with him at the time, according to the Sally Jacobs biography of BHO Sr., p. 152.; sometime after Auma’s fourth birthday, she is taken from Kezia and placed in a convent boarding school in Nairobi, according to Maraniss.
March 5, 1964 alternate date of marriage for SADOS and Lolo Soetoro, an “ethnic Javanese“, according to her passport dated April 27, 1981 and a 2011 news story; no explanation for discrepancy, except if 1964, they married before her divorce was final. Whoops! Note that March 5 is the date at the top of the divorce decree, but it’s not finalized until the 20th. So she and Lolo married the same day that she went to court?
April 1964 Ms. Frost of Harvard tells the INS (p. 21 INS file) that Harvard “thinks” BHO Sr. may be married to someone in Cambridge (assume this is Ruth Beatrice Baker (Obama Ndesandjo) yet could be another wife altogether). If Ruth, then Sally Jacobs book is wrong. See Dec. 1964, below. Yet Wikipedia, after the Jacobs bio was released, stated that Ruth and BHO Sr. met in June 1964
June, 1964 Lolo Soetoro receives M.A. in geography from U of HAWAII Manoa; he then receives a certificate for eligibility as an exchange visitor, so he can work for L. Frederick Pack and Associates as a surveyor/mapping trainee, according to his passport files released under FOIA through June 1965; BHO Sr. and Ruth Beatrice Baker meet (unless they were married by April 1964), when she’s working as a teacher at a suburban elementary school. BHO Sr. was supposed to leave the US on 6/8/64, extended to 7/8/64, but he was reported as an “abscondee, perhaps by Ruth’s mother. INS investigation said he left 7/7/64.
August 1964 BHO Sr. returns to Kenya WITHOUT finishing his doctorate, although he may have earned an MA in economics; he works for the Kenyan government; publishes an article criticizing Kenyan’s economic policies, and, as a result, was transferred to a tourism job
About September 1964 Ruth Beatrice Baker (Obama?) follows BHO Sr. to Kenya
November 1, 1964 SADOS lived at 2234 University Ave., Honolulu, according to Lolo’s immigration records; this site claims that SAD, Barry, and her parents lived there in 1964.
December 24, 1964 Barack Obama Sr. and Ruth Beatrice Baker (who left Newton, Mass. for Kenya in 1964) marry on Christmas Eve in Nairobi, Kenya, according to Sally Jacobs biography, “The Other Barack: The Bold and Reckless Life of President Obama’s Father”; Ruth works as a secretary at The Nation newspaper and BHO Sr. works for Shell Oil Co.; she’s Lithuanian-Jewish
March 15 1965 Stanley Ann Obama Dunham marries Lolo Soetoro of the many surnames in Molokai, Maui, HI, according to her passport file; she allegedly receives a degree in math from the U of HI in 1967, according to Wikipedia; see March 5 1964; but another story falsely states they married in 1967; they lived at 3326 Oahu in Honolulu, according to Lolo’s immigration files, which also said that until they married, SADOS’s parents supported her; she also says she speaks French and some Indonesian
July 19, 1965 Stanley Ann Dunham issued a U.S. passport F777788; application for this passport destroyed, missing, or hidden from citizen researchers; unknown whether this passport was new or a renewal
Between 1965 and 1968 BHO Sr. loses both legs in a car accident; by this time, he’s married to Ruth (before his return to Kenya, according to Kezia, so before ’65); Ruth is in Kenya with him when he’s injured, according to Kezia. Another story says Ruth and BHO Sr. married in Kenya but met during his Harvard days, implying that Roy and Auma moved in with Ruth and BHO Sr., perhaps to enjoy the perks of Ruth’s wealth, which allowed them to live in Nairobi and attend private schools; Note: that story has been locked up by the Boston Globe; it’s referenced here
November 1965 Mark Okoth born to Ruth and BHO Sr., according to Jacobs bio of BHO Sr., page 190; Mark Okoth (Obama) Ndesandjo spent most of his childhood in Kenya although a Chination story says that Mark spent only his first 7 years in Kenya before moving to the USA; SADOS says she’s living with Barry and her parents in a home they rent in Honolulu, according to Lolo’s immigration records; Maraniss says Mark’s dob is 11/28/65.
End of 1965 Ruth Baker Obama gets job in Kenya as secretary to general manager, a “young woman” cares for baby Mark Okoth
July 20, 1966 Lolo Soetoro leaves Hawaii, where he had been attending the University of Hawaii, to return to Indonesia, according to WND and his immigration file

May 24, 1967 Barry reported to be attending kindergarten in Honolulu (Noelani?) per a letter in Lolo’s immigration file; Genevieve Hogan Cook, his 1980s paramour, also lives in Jakarta for a few years.
Summer 1967 Ruth Beatrice Baker Obama shows up at her parents’ home (16 Hartman Road, Newton?, Massachusetts) with 1-year old “coffee-colored” Okoth (Mark); her mother finds them a place to live in Cambridge; BHO Sr. shows up in Massachusetts, sometime before Oct., to beg her to come back to him, which she does (at some point) and they live in the Woodley Estate home in Nairobi that comes with his new government job; Ruth gets a job at Nestle; Auma and Roy move in, as does Ezra Obama, BHO Sr.’s first cousin, who is relegated to the servant quarters, along with other Obama relations; Wilson Obama, another cousin, shows up, too, as did BHO Sr.’s half-siblings Amir Otieno Orindo and Zeituni Onyango; BHO Sr. takes up with Kezia again, who works as a waitress; within months, Ruth is pregnant with David Opiyo, and yet David Maraniss claims Ruth gave birth that very Sept., so she must have been pregnant while in the USA. However, Maraniss places Ruth’s visit to the USA in 1966.
June 29, 1967 Stanley Ann Dunham files to amend her U.S. Passport No. F777788 to change to her married name, Stanley Ann Soetoro, according to WND, linked above; this is the passport originally issued in 1965, for which application is missing

September 11, 1967 David Opiyo Obama is born in Kenya to Ruth Baker Obama, according to interview (David Maraniss book Barack Obama: The Story) Note that this conflicts with the story Sally Jacobs tells. If David was born in Sept. 1967, then Ruth was very pregnant with him when she visited her parents with Mark that previous summer.
October 1967 SADOS flies from Honolulu, Hawaii, to Djakarta, Indonesia, on Japan Airlines, with Barry, it is presumed; BHO Sr. begins a new job as Senior Development Officer for Kenya Tourist Development Corp.
November 4, 1967 BHO Sr. charged and convicted for drunk driving accident, p. 208, Jacobs bio
1968 Sometime in this year, BHO Sr., Ruth, Mark (age 3) and David (age 1) visit “Luoland”: “They stayed in Nyang’oma Kogelo with his step-mother Sarah, and Hussein Onyango, and took a side trip down to Kanyadhiang” (page 249, Maraniss biography “Barack Obama: The Story”). For Mark to be 3, this had to take place beginning no earlier than November, 1968; David contracted malaria on the trip and was hospitalized in Nairobi.
January 1, 1968 to December 1970 Barry attends Catholic school in Indonesia, St. Francis Assisi; registered as the son of L. Soetoro Ma, as a citizen of Indonesia, as a Muslim per contemporaneous school records; likely adopted by Lolo Soetoro; Barry’s book says he spent 2 years in each school; in January 1968, Lolo worked as an official of the Director General’s office in the TNI Topography division of the Indonesian Army and also for Mobil Oil; they lived at 16 Haji Ramli St. in Jakarta, where Barry also attended mosque, although years later his spokesman Gibbs claims he was NEVER a practicing Muslim; but Wikipedia provides other addresses: 16 Kyai Haji Ramli Tengah Street and later 22 Taman Amir Hamzah Street in the much ritzier “administrative district”
August 13, 1968 SADOS renews her 1965-issued US passport until July 18, 1970, stating that she intends to live in Djakarta, Indonesia, indefinitely because married to an Indonesian citizen

January 1970 to 1971 Barry attends Muslim school in Indonesia, Besuki, reportedly the same school as Audie Geithner, Tim’s sister; his adopted sister, Lia Soetoro Sobah, states that he’s taken to school via chauffeur; he has a transvestite nanny, although this is not Lia, who some rationalize as merely a nanny; friends say he was dressed better than others, he was fat, and he ate a lot; he met Tim Geithner at least once in Indonesia, where his mother worked for Geithner’s father
January 1970-August 1972 In Jakarta, Stanley “Ann was Director of Management Development & Educational Institutions whose primary job was to supervise the publication of books and educational management.” [Translated]
1970 BHO Sr. has son Bernard (Otieno, page 202, Jacobs bio; aka Sadik Otieno) by Kezia; as with Abo, Barry says in his book that Auntie Zeituni questions Bernard’s paternity, according to Sally Jacobs, Kezia did not get birth certificates for Abo or Bernard before BHO Sr. died
August 15, 1970 Maya Kassandra Soetoro born to SADOS and Lolo of the many surnames
About late 1971 BHO Sr. divorced by Ruth, 7 years after the alleged marriage; he returns to Kezia; Onny Padmo attends Barry’s birthday party on Dempo St., near Amir Hamzah Park in Jakarta, while both are in grade 4 at Besuki; a neighbor of #2 Dempo St., Haji Mamiati, says the black/negroid child living there claimed he was Papuan, from Irian Jaya; Maya said Barry lived in Indonesia from 1968-1973/4
October 20, 1971 SADOS flies from Djakarta to Honolulu on Pan Am Airways, arriving on Oct. 21st; unknown when Barry returned, because his book says he traveled to Hawaii alone sometime in 1971
1971 BHO Sr. supposedly back in Hawaii around Christmas time, visiting Ann and Barry, speaking to Barry’s 5th grade class at Punahou, observed by Mabel Hefty as well as Barbara (aka Babs) Nelson; Kezia claims that BHO Sr. and Barry never met “properly” because Sr. died before Barry’s first trip to Kenya
1971 Obama Onyango (Uncle Omar Okech Onyango Obama) writes a letter to the editor of Ebony magazine, extolling the virtues of pan-Africanism, and the “dreams of brothers Marcus Garvey, W.E.B. DuBois and Malcolm X”, and the music of Ike and Tina Turner and Wilson Pickett (at least he had good taste in music); at the time, Omar lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts
1971-1979 Barry is in Hawaii, at Punahou college preparatory school; he began in the 5th grade, with teacher Mabel Morris Hefty; also teaching there at the same time, Barbara Nelson (teacher, principal, newspaper reporter, photographer, harpist, artist and poet) who claims to remember Barry’s birth; Barbara Nelson follows Barry’s basketball career and makes a lei for him when he graduates; Barry’s grandfather Stanley Armour Dunham introduces him to Frank Marshall Davis, who becomes a “mentor” to Barry until he leaves for college on the mainland
January 4, 1972 SADOS, a teacher, (re)applies for a US passport by mail from her father’s home in Hawaii to travel to her permanent residence at DJL Taman Matraman Barat, 22 Pav, Djakarta, Indonesia, stating she is returning “home” in 10 days to stay indefinitely. She amends passport to include/exclude “Barack Hussein Obama (Soebarkah)”, probably excluded because Soebarkah is remaining in Hawaii.
May 1, 1974 SADOS lives at 1839 Poki St., apt 3, in Honolulu, according to Lolo’s immigration files; Lolo is on business in Djakarta, assume the entire family lives there, based upon text of the letter. This site says she and Maya lived there 1974-1976, obviously untrue.
August 1974 SADOS and Lolo have an “informal separation” according to P. 5 of the divorce papers; page 3 of Lolo’s immigration files refers to “youngest child who resides with mother” and that he has not ”contributed to support of wife and children since 1974″; reports are that Lolo and SADOS had only one child, so why indications of more than one?
June 19 1975 Richard Ndesanjo born in Nairobi, Kenya; no absolute confirmation yet that this tennis player from Kenya is the son of Ruth Beatrice Baker Obama Ndesandjo, but she is reported to have a son named Richard, after whom her kindergarten was partially named (MArk,DAvid,RIchard–Madari kindergarten); Ruth’s name spelled both ways in official records (Ndesandjo/Ndesanjo).

1979-1981 Barry graduates from Punahou in spring 1979 and goes to Los Angeles, CA, to attend Occidental College, where he met John Drew in fall, 1980, and lived with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, a wealthy Pakistani student, and Imad Husain (now a banker), both Muslims, and where he first met Chandoo’s friend Sohale Siddiqi, with whom he later lived in NYC; in summer of 1980, Barry lived with Vinai Thummalapally; he was part of a tight circle of radical friends (pics), among them Lisa Jack, who took a photo montage of Barry as a dope-smoking, superfly wannabe. Another roommate at Oxy was allegedly Paul Carpenter, who’s now a lawyer. Another friend at Oxy was “Jon K. Mitchell, who later played bass for country-swing band Asleep at the Wheel.” Another person who allegedly knew Barry at Oxy and in New York was Andrew Roth.
November 8 1979 Joseph Ndesandjo born in Nairobi, Kenya, to Ruth Nidesand (Nides) Obama Ndesandjo and her soon-to-be husband (UTN—unidentified Tanzanian Ndesandjo, h/t Princess Papooski, aka Simon/Simeon Ndasandjo, aka Ndesanjo); Madari kindergarten is built; Barry’s Punahou high school basketball team wins the state championship.
1980 Ruth Nidesand Obama supposedly remarries, to a Tanzanian surnamed Ndesandjo/NdAsandjo/Ndesanjo, although her son Joseph was born 1979, according to zabasearch. Stories say that Ruth had “sons” with this man, so there may be others yet to be identified; April of 1980, Madari kindergarten (aka Maduri in news stories), built by Ruth’s second husband, opens, with Ruth as headmistress.
August 28, 1980 SADOS divorces Lolo, according to her passport file; Lolo marries Erna Kustina in 1980
Christmas 1980 Barry becomes Barack Hussein Obama II (according to Maya. According to Barry, it was the following summer.)
1981-November 1984 Stanley “Ann became Program Supervisor of Women in the FORD FOUNDATION SOUTHEAST ASIA, which has an office in Jakarta.” [Translated] Note that the Indonesian sentence contains the word Tenggara, which translates to southeast; but which might actually mean the islands of Nusa Tenggara, which contain Lomboc (where Ann was photographed) and which islands (Lesser Sunda Islands) are only a few miles from Bali (where Barry and Michelle spent months while he was trying to write his memoirs in the early 90s): “Supervisor Program Pemberdayaan Perempuan di FORD FOUNDATION ASIA TENGGARA”
April 27, 1981 SADOS renews her passport until 1986; she’s residing at Jalan Daksa I/14, Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta Seletan, Indonesia, but gives her permanent address as 1617 S. Beretania Apt 1008, Honolulu, HI–her father’s home; she will continue to reside abroad for 2 yrs. as program officer for Ford Foundation 1/81 through 12/82. [This from her passport records; the citation above says she worked there through 1984.]
1981 Barry takes 3-week trip to Pakistan, Indonesia, India, possibly Kenya (possibly Hajj in SA?), with Chandoo (self-employed financial consultant in 2009) and his friend Wahid Hamid (executive at Pepsico in 2009), where in Pakistan they allegedly shot pheasants (or partridges) and stayed at the home of a prominent politician, Ahmad Mian Soomro, in an upscale Karachi suburb. Soomro’s son, Muhammad Mian Soomro, is a senior politician who served as acting president before the appointment of President Asif Ali Zardari; Yusuf Aji Soetoro, half-brother of Maya, born to Lolo’s second wife Erna Kustina.
Summer 1981 Both Barry and Alexandra McNear, daughter of wealthy writer Robert Erskine McNear, move to New York City. Alex took a theater course; Barry planned to attend Columbia. They had a two-month “affair“. The Vanity Fair article, based upon the same source, implied that their affair took place in the summer of 1982 (see below).
1981-1983 Barry goes to NYC and attends Columbia University, where he lives with Sohale Siddiqi, who is not a student but a tourist who overstayed his visa, and close by Bill Ayers and the proposed site of the WTC Mosque; Barry graduates in June 1983, BA in Political Science; various addresses: #3E, 142 W. 109th St., with Phil Boerner; #6A, 339 E. 94th St., in Yorkville; in spring ’83, Barry writes an article for the campus paper, the Sundial, about anti-war groups. Siddiqi is said to have been a waiter and to have worked in a boutique.
1982 birth of George Obama, to Jael Otien, girlfriend of BHO Sr., but possibly the Luo girl BHO Sr. married in 1981; supposedly raised in Nairobi by his mother and a French stepfather; his mother now lives in Atlanta, GA., the same city where Mark Ndesandjo later attended Emory. George was born about May, because he says he was 6 months old when his father died.
Summer 1982 Barry allegedly reconnects with Alexandra C. McNear, of the prominent McNear family of CA (but it may have been a year earlier), with whom he went to Occidental. She moved to NYC and they became an item. Alex lived on 90th St. After their summer of love, he wrote her letters from where he lived, 339 East 94th, in Manhattan, to where she lived, 2210 Ridgeview Avenue, in Eagle Rock, California. He dumped her a few months after she returned to L.A., writing her from Honolulu, where he was allegedly visting his mother.
November 24 or 26, 1982 BHO Sr. killed in a car crash in Nairobi supposedly at age 46; but he should be 44 according to Kezia; early the next year, Barry goes to Kenya “to mourn his late father”; Mama Sarah and his cousin suspected foul play ; author David Mendell says Obama first went to Kenya in 1983, after college (p. 355); if not born in Kenya, Barry was required by the Kenyan Citizenship Act to renounce other citizenships and swear an oath of allegiance to Kenya before August 4, 1984; public records state BHO Sr. died intestate on the 26th, not the 24th; accident site on Elgon Road per public records. But then again, maybe it was the 23rd.
December, 1982 Barry spends two weeks visiting Alexandra McNear in L.A. during semester break; he stays in her apartment.
1983-1985 Barry is living in NYC, after graduation from Columbia (he did not attend graduation ceremony, conveniently–no photos); he allegedly works at Business International Corporation (quit late 1984) and NY Public Interest Research Group (after mid-January, 1985, until June, when he went to Chicago), where he organized students at City University. Or City College.
Between ’83 and ’85, Auma and Barry say, David Opiyo (“the twin”) was killed in a motorcycle accident, while Auma was at college in Heidelberg and Barry was still in NYC, per Barry’s bogus biography, page 137; may have been 1984; according to the Maraniss biography, Barry was in a relationship with Genevieve Cook when David died (see below).
Christmas 1983, Barry meets Genevieve Hogan Cook (b. 1958) at a Christmas party hosted by a young man who worked at Chanticleer Press, where Cook formerly worked.
