Sam Miller was my grandfather on my father's side. He was the 2nd or 3rd of 11 full siblings and two half brothers. Their name was Moncarz or Macarz, which meant Mill since his family owned a flower mill in Pultusk, Poland. The relative who welcomed him at Ellis Island told him to use Miller. In American he made coats in the Garment Business in Chelsea NY city. He was the first to come to the USA. My grandparents always lived in Brooklyn. They had two sons and my father was the older one. My grand father sponsored many relatives in coming to the US, both before and after the Holocaust. He was kind of a gruff person, but he surely loved his grandchildren. And one of the workers in the coat factory that I liked to visit always told me that my father was the partner who really took care of the workers.
