Originally aired: Thursday, November 10, 2016
When Seattle quietly marks the 165th anniversary this Sunday of the arrival of the Denny Party at Alki Beach, Amy Louisa Johnson won't be in town to celebrate the founding of the Pacific Northwest's largest city.
Johnson is a great-great-great-granddaughter of pioneer David Denny, who came here from Cherry Grove, Illinois along with several family members. David Denny was known for taking extra care to maintain ties with local Native Americans.
