do you have info from the first ancestor that immigrated here and died here? Benzion is the hebrew/yiddish name and not usually used in america. does app ear on headstones.
bejamin is an excellent and common choice for the american name. sohn or son at end means son of as does ben in hebrew at the beginning.

i think your research so far is great!

maybe the jewishgen.org site can help you.
