Donald was the son of James Garfield Peckham and Emily Arvilla Mihills. He was the grandson of George Peckham, a pioneer Nevada farmer for whom Peckham Lane in Reno was named.

While at his grandparent's house in Virginia City, Donald wandered off to go exploring and got lost. Several search parties were formed, headed by his father James, but after two days Donald was found at the summit of Mt. Davidson. He had died of exposure.

Besides his parents and grandparents, he was survived by two brothers, Edward Mihills and Dorlon Arthur Peckham. One sister, Margaret Arvilla Peckham, was born after his death.
