Ebenezer Heap

My 3xgt grandfather was a Yorkshire man who eventually settled in Manchester about 1837. He was baptised at Lydgate Chapel in 1797, father Joseph Heap of Wooldale Townend, mother not named.
8 years later another Ebenezer was born to a Joseph and Mary Heap. He is well documented in the area but I can find no connection to my Ebenezer Heap apart from the fact that they both gave their children a similar set of names.
I keep wondering whether the two Josephs are perhaps one person. I'd be very glad to hear some other ideas. Thank you.
