About John Breen, Donner Party

Survived, age 14

John went to the diggings in 1849 and returned with $12,000 worth of gold, a fortune in those days. His father used it to purchase the Castro Adobe and other property. John’s diligence as a youth of 16 thus laid the foundation of his family’s later prosperity.
