I am a relative of Jay Silverheels or Harry Smith; my mother, Mary K. Hill Johnson was a first cousin of Harry's & grew up with him on the Six Nations Indian Reservation, Ohsweken, Ontario, Canada. We always followed his career and I did meet him in California in 1966. He did return periodically to Six Nations but I never met him on those visits.

I am a distant cousin of Harry. He lived with my grandmother and her parents when they moved to Buffalo. I am looking for anyone who knows there is a direct link the to him and David and Ella Groat from the reservation. I would like to know how he is my cousin if it is on David's side or Ella Groat(Grote)side also Chrysler. My grandmother has passed and would like to bring the family back together again.
