It's puzzling to me how Jesus would have known that the 10th leper was a Samaritan. Did they dress differently than Galileans? Especially since they were all lepers (my image of lepers has been formed from their portrayals in Biblical movie - dressed in rags, pitiful appearance, etc).

I suspect that in the time of Jesus when people lived for generations in the same place, there were habits and customs that everyone could use to tell who was "one of us" and who was "one of them." With "us" and "them" shifting depending non the context. For example, "leprosy" brings Galileans and Samaritans together, but healing re-asserts the old divisions.
