I'm 31 yr. old from Long Island NY,my grandfather is Blenkhorn Silvera and is of jewish descent ( sephartic).My Grandfather married Hope Silver, I don't recall her maiden name, I will try to get our family tree that my grandfather had made for our family. I do hear that a Silvera in the JA and even South America are related, I have also met many a cousin in England. Iwas introduced to these people at a family reunion in the mid 80's in JA St.Mary's parish, erocabasa (I'm sure that isn't spelt correctly) That was at my Grandfathers house BlenHope estates, The land was from both sides of that family, Grandmother (half English) and from my Grandfather. I've spent days on the land with my cousin Lenon Thompson who runs the plantation. The land is large and between both families a total of maybe 10 siblings I haveheard close to 300 acres, Also related would be Keith Cousins who has land next door to Bob Marley's Managers place ,across the street is one of the Thompson homes. I am excited to have found this site by mistake, I believe all above to be accurate, I will confirm more info with my family and continue to post.
