For the moment, Arthur Denny (1822-1899) and his family were ill with ague (malarial fever) and they remained on Alki Point. Carson Boren (1824?-1912) and David Denny (1832-1903) had gone south to obtain livestock.
By mid-April, most of the original Denny Party had relocated to the Pioneer Square area. Charles Terry (1828-1867) and his brother Lee Terry (1818-1862) stayed behind. Charles established his New York Store, the first store in the future King County. Lee Terry returned to the East Coast soon after.
