The three brothers Jacob, Peter, and Michael did they come to America together?

Out of curiosity I did a search requiring only the three male names to see if by chance the men came to America all at the same time. I went to the olive tree site and did a Pico search. What I found is that 3 men with the needed given names did come to this North America at one time. The ship master was English so I could see the simple error that could have been made. I this the brothers we all have been searching for?
