Ellis - Russia - Philadelphia

Surnames: Ellis, Leibowitz
My great-grandfather, Samuel Ellis, was born in Teplick (that is what his World War I registration card says), Podolsky, Moscow, Russia on May 15, 1891 or 1892. He was Jewish. According to a passport application from 1920-1921, his father was named Solomon Ellis. Solomon Ellis lived his entire life in Russia and died there sometime in/before 1920-1921, as the passport application said that Solomon was deceased. He was married to Elsie Leibowitz, who was born in Philadelphia, who was around 4 years his junior. Their children were Solomon (born around 1925), Rita (born in 1926), and Justin (born around 1929). As per the Jewish custom, the latter Solomon was named after his deceased grandfather. I am not sure who Rita and Justin were named after; possibly Samuel Ellis's relatives? If anyone has any information about Russian Ellises from this area, I would greatly appreciate it.
