I don't know if this is helpful, but my grandfather, Jacob Silver (b. 1886), came from Kelce Poland (then Russia) under the name Jacob Kweksilber (Quicksilver). His father Abraham Kwekzilber (a shoe maker) had at least 6 siblings all born in Staszow, a shtetle outside of Kelce. Jacob may have lived briefly in England as the only ship manifest I can find matching his name and arrival date (3 Jan 1906) came from Southhampton England. I have no information on a Samuel or descendants.
