    David Thomas Denny was the younger brother of the founding settler of Seattle, David Armstrong Denny. David Denny was sent on ahead of the main party to scout out places for settlement, and sent a note to the rest of the party at Portland, that he had found a good spot on Puget Sound, with plenty of room.
