Simon STEINMETZ-son John Adam STEINMETZ-anyone researching this line??

Good Day
I have been sorting through some STEINMETZ info I have collected
And I came across this in church records of the Lutheran Church at Brickerville( I believe that is the name, its hard to read)
Simon STEINMETZ and wife Ann Margaret had two children baptized
John Adam STEINMETZ 8-21-1787
Elizabeth 1793

In family records I have my 5grandfather STIENMETZ ,first name is not listed,but his wife is as Margaret MILLER
In our family records they list a son(my4granfather) as Adam STEINMTEZ

In the National Genealogical Society Quarterly
It list my 4 grandfather(Adam STEINEMTZ) as being born 10-21-1787
My 4grandfather(Adam) married a Catherine MIST and they had a son Jacob STEINMETZ

Now I am wondering,could my Adam STEINMETZ be the son of Simon STEINMETZ and Ann Margaret - (John Adam STEINMETZ)
I know it was not uncommon to drop first name and use middle names(makes for fun research-LOL)
The wife of Simon and the sons name are close to the names I have and the year of baptism and birth are the same
If anyone is researching the Simon STIENMETZ line,maybe you can shed some light on this for me
Also I would like to know if this Simon is realted to Casper STIENMETZ,as there are so many surnames that are in both of these STEINMETZ line ,as in mine
BANTA,WESTERVELT,TERHUNE(speeling varrations),DEMAREST(spelling varations)
ROMEYN(spelling varrations) and VAN BUREN

Thanks for your time
