Just lost my father, a long time genealogist to Huntington's.We had tried to trace the heritage of this disease in our family which ran in the Denning line.
I have a 1860 census that shows JH Denning in Montague County,TX infirm and "demented".So, likely he died of Huntington's.His parents came from North Carolina, so If anyone has an info, please send to me.This is kind of an interesting way to look at ancestry - from a genetic viewpoint.Any help would be appreciated.I have very little on the line.
