Try searching for obituaries in old newspapers. Hannah's maiden name may have been mentioned.
Many are digitized and searchable. Try this site (newspapers are arranged geographically):
Also, check if either Hannah or Samuel left a will (probate record.) If so, pay attention to any name mentioned in the will, you may potentially find a clue there. I have seen wills where money was left to family back in Europe.
Look for vital records (birth, marriage, death) of Hannah's children, as her maiden name may be listed.
Good luck in your search,
