Maurice Denn, who has extensive mining interests in southern Arizona and is now living retired in Bisbee, where he has made  his home for more than a third of a century, is a native of Massachusetts. He was born at Bunker Hill on the 15th of June, 1854, and is the eldest in a family of eight children, six of whom are still living.

In the early days of his childhood Maurice Denn accompanied his parents on their removal to Wisconsin in which state he was reared and educated.  Soon after he attained his majority the family again started westward, California being their destination on this occasion and there the father and mother passed the remainder of their lives.  Maurice Denn resided in California for five years and at the end of that period in 1880 came to Arizona, locating in Bisbee and there for many years he was actively engaged in mining and prospecting.  He met with good success and is now living retired. He owns an attractive residence in the city and is a stockholder in the Copper Mines, Shattuck and Denn.

Mr. Denn has been twice married. In 1896 he wedded Mrs. Mary
E. Ovens, who passed away four years later and on the 20th of August 1905 he married Miss Ella Sugich, a native of Austria.  To them have been born five children: Ellen, born, November 15, 1906; Angelina, born February 14, 1908; Mary, born March 13, 1910, Maurice, born August 23, 1912 and Martin born Dec. 15, 1914.
