Birth: 1873, Poland
Death: Oct. 27, 1915
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA

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.
