The Samaritans are descendants of Jacob through Joseph and his son

Numbers 26:24 Of Jashub, the family of the Jashubites: of Shimron, the family of the Shimronites.

Numbers 26:25 These are the families of Issachar according to those that were numbered of them, threescore and four thousand and three hundred.

So they are as old nation since even before Moses time
