French or French Canadian conntection to Huntington's Disease

Surnames: Peterson/Petersen
My Paternal Grandmother's family line has Huntington's Disease. I've been working on tracing it to see where it may have started. I know this line of my family is French/French Canadian and Native American. The Native American side has been ruled out as the carriers (almost everyone lived to over 90!) So, now I'm on to the French Canadian side, Peterson or Petersen. I've traced it back to the mid 1800's New York, but it seems to be a fairly common last name in that area.

Anyone else searching Peterson, in New York with Huntington's Disease?
