Sometime in the 1930s, the family "Americanized" the name to Samson. Apparently there was much prejudice and outright persecution shown to Italians in those days. They thought by changing the name, it would help.
So did Pasquale and Vincenzo immigrate to America or did they stay in Italy?

Let's see - what does that make us? Some sort of cousins removed or something?
