In 1851, Denny and his wife and family set out fon a wagon train for the Oregon Territory. They reached Portland in August, 1851. From there, they travelled on to the Puget Sound area and laid claim to land tracts that would later become the center of Seattle. Denny ran various merchandizing enterprises until 1853 when he became a county commissioner. When Washington Territory was formed, he served in the Territorial House and in 1855 became Speaker of the House. In 1863, Denny was elected to the US Congress.
