This category contains profiles of members of the Donner Party.

The Donner party were 81 American Pioneers that set out for California in a wagon train in 1846 by the beginning of November 1846 the emigrants had reached the Sierra Nevada, where they became trapped by an early, heavy snowfall near Truckee now called Donner Lake, high in the mountains. Their food supplies ran low, and in mid-December some of the group set out on foot to obtain help. Rescuers from California attempted to reach the emigrants, but the first relief party did not arrive until the middle of February 1847, almost four months after the wagon train became trapped. Of the 87 members of the party, 48 survived to reach California some of these immigrants resorted to cannibalism to survive
