Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 28, 1847
Douglas County
Nevada, USA

Tamzene was the wife of Captain George Donner. She went to the cabin of Lewis Keseberg at midnight on the 27th of March 1847 and told him that her husband was dead. She said her husband had died in her arms and, had died at nightfall. She wanted to see her children. She told Mr. Keseberg that she had money in her tent and for him to get the money and take it to her children in case she perished. The next morning she was dead. The hunger, the mental suffering, and the icy chill of the preceding night, caused her death. She was the third wife of Captain George Donner.
