Thank you, Steve.  I have been looking for this answer, I knew it was 
something reasonable but I couldn't put my finger  on it.  Joseph, his wife, and 
their two children would bring it to seventy.  Didn't realize Simeon was there 
with his family.  Good solution.  Where did you find that Simeon was in already 
in Egypt?
