About Howard Oakley

Age: ? Second Relief

      According to one source, Oakley was a Mormon who sailed from New York with Sam Brannan in the Brooklyn; this is probably an error, however, as his name is absent from other Brooklyn passenger lists and his name is not elsewhere mentioned in Mormon records. He was living in San Francisco when the call went out for volunteers to rescue the Donner Party. Oakley and his wife Mary Ann are mentioned in the early alcalde records of Santa Cruz in 1848, but what became of them afterwards is presently unknown.
