Detroit News, March 14, 1931. Friedrich’s ataxia is a progressive genetic neurological disorder afflicting about 1 in 50,000 Americans. Most of those cases can be traced back to a single ancestral couple, Jean Guyon and Mathurine Robin, who emigrated from France to Quebec in 1634. Jean and Mathurine are also the great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandparents of Celine Dion. A pair of serious plague-bearers, that Jean and Mathurine.

That’s Jack London’s 2nd cameo appearance here on The Hope Chest. He also popped up in our eponymous inaugural post.
