Rokytov is a village and municipality in Bardejov District in the Prešov Region of north-east Slovakia. It was formerly Homonna-Rokito, Zemplen.

I found Samuel’s birth record in the JewishGen Hungary Database.
. His parents were WEISZBERGER David and MOSKOVITS Szara/Szure.

There is a naturalization record on Family Search for a Sam Weissberger born 18 Oct 1878:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QP82-X441

According to the record, he was born in H. Rokito, Hungary, and immigrated in 1906. Googling suggests that this place may now be in Slovakia; I couldn't find it in JewishGen's Gazetteer.

A death record of a Samuel Weissberger who died on 15 July 1946 is also on FamilySearch. According to the record, his parents were David and Sarah.

Nava, do you know your great-grandmother's birth place? Or her parents' names?
