Is Nicholas Dix the same as Nicholas (DePuy) Decker?

I'm wondering if anyone has evidence that Nicholas Dix is the same person as Nicholas DePuy Decker?  Both profiles show this person marrying someone named either Lydia Minion or Lydia Minnion

Marriage records in Burlington, New Jersey document the marriage of Nicholas Decker with Lydia Minion. 

While some trees on Family Search are showing these lines as connected, I'm wondering if there are any documents that show that Nicholas Dix and Nicholas Decker (or DePuy Decker) are the same person? 

My DNA results, as well as those of my brother, show that some people related to me on my father's side (which goes back to the Reeves line, with Elizabeth Dix of New Jersery marrying Richard Reeves) are also related to DNA matches I have on my mother's father's side - which goes back to New Netherlands, including Westbrooks, Deckers, and many related families.  Elizabeth's Dix's father was Nicholas Dix.  If Nicholas Dix is Nicholas Decker, that could explain why these two otherwise unrelated lines are showing shared matches.  Of course, there might be other connections! 

I would appreciate any help you might offer!  Roberta
