Simon and Simeon Newcomb (1660's)

Simon (BMN #4) and Simeon (BMN #3)  Newcomb were sons of Lt. Andrew Newcomb (BMN #2) and his first wife Sarah. I have run across a number of websites made by people who think that Simon and his brother Simeon are the same person. This leads to a lot of confusion, especially since Simeon's name was sometimes incorrectly written as Simon.
