Schultz Family Of Syracuse, NY From Warsaw Poland

My maternal Great Grandfather, Henry S Schultz (July, 1891) , came to NY at 19 years old (1910), from Warsaw, Poland, which at the time was part of the Russian Empire. He married Frances Mandel and settled in Syracuse. Henry and Francis had 5 children, Helen, Arthur, Henry, Donald and Anna. My Grandfather, Henry Stanley Schultz, Jr. married Charlotte Roberts of Newark Valley, NY and had 2 children, Ronald and my mother Diane Schultz Meyers.

I am writing because I've reached an absolute dead end on my Great Grandfather's Polish lineage. He never spoke of his time in Poland, at least to surviving family members and his parents names aren't listed on any known US documents. I've researched the Ellis Island Immigration Records and Ship Records, to no avail.

I was told he came in on the Hamburg (alone) to NY City in 1910. I don't have a date of arrival. He became naturalized in 1925. He more than likely changed his surname when he landed in the US, but I am unsure. He was a practicing Roman Catholic for his entire life here in Syracuse and it's my understanding that he was in the Roman Catholic Church in Poland also.

I am looking for any possible family that may have come to the US before or after 1910 and had a relative from Warsaw, Poland that was born on June 26, 1891 from a family with a name variation of Schultz, or first name Henry? Possibly Heinrich or something similar?
