Trying to find Samolis

Any descendants of the brothers Joseph, Anthony, John & Vincent, who fled Lithuania between 1870 and 1900. Believed that 3 brothers went to England, one other to Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania (fought with valour in war against the spanish). Samolis is believed to be an extremely rare name in lithaunia, so desecendants in the west are quite likely to have a common lineage.
