February 26,1838, was the birthday of Patty Reed who was only 8 years old when her family set out from Illinois to travel west on the Great Platte River Road with an expedition led by Jacob and George Donner. A blizzard in the Sierra-Nevada Mountains brought many in their party to a tragic end. The Reeds, however, eventually made it to California and Patty lived to the age of 85.
