Jona & his wife brought their 8 (of 10) surviving children to the US. He did not know he was in the beginning stages of Huntington's disease when he was working on a scaffolding in NYC. He lost his balance and fell to his death.
4 of those 8 children also succumbed to Huntington's.
Jona was my great-grandfather. My family is lucky; he did not pass that gene to my grandmother.
