Looking for any info on Jay Silverheels (born Harold J. Smith). His father was Alexander George Smith. He played Tonto onthe Lone Ranger show. Born about 1912, died May 1980. My mother was always told he was her second cousin but having a hard time finding the connection. She remembered him at family gatherings when she was young. My mothers people are Hill and Green from six nations. Her parents Morgan and Mina (green) Hill, G-parents Elmer and Mabel (vyse) Hill and Cornelius and Melissa(jakes) Green.
Any info would be appreciated. I can be emailed also at shmooy2@wmconnect.com.
Thanks!

Hello,
I dont know whether you will respond to this but I'm pretty sure I am a cousin and have been recently looking into my ancestry. My grandfather is Howard Grant Hill who is the son of Mina Green (Morgan Hill Jr.?). I am interested in hearing about your side of the family, if you have some time.
Thanks,
Kaitlyn

Hi,

I am trying to reach Mary DiRoma Silverheels who was Jay Silverheel's wife. I am looking for my father, David Delvecchio, Mary's brother and my father were very close friends. Mary knew him too and so may still know how to reach him.

If you have any way for me to contact Mary Silverheels, will you please let me know. Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

Lisa Scott

When I was a young girl my Mother raised and showed parade horses. She rode a high stepping palomino stallion, she was and still is a beautiful woman. My Mother's costume was totally handmade from head to toe, totally covered in sequins each hand-stitched by Tonto's sister who was a magnificent talented woman.
