paternity/SS death benefits

I have a 4 year old whose bio dad committed suicide in 2004. I never established paternity because he wasn't a good guy. About 3 years ago I got a letter from his ex-wife telling me he killed himself. I confirmed by locating the obit. He had 2 children with his ex-wife and one by me which he never acknowledged. Is there any way to establish paternity 3 years after his death, so my daughter can recieve social security survivor benefits? His parents I know would not be willing to cooperate? Help I need guidance. Also I am in Florida and he lived and died in Tenneessee
