Ezekial Bright (b. 1794 Talbot, MD, d. 1880 Franklin, IN)

I am looking for the parents of Ezekial Bright (b. 1794 Maryland , d.1880 Indiana). He was married to Lucretia Parrott (b. 1805 Maryland, d. 1862 Indiana) and had 16 children:
Matilda (1821 – 1909)
William (1825 – 1893)
Alexander (1826 – 1863)
Sarah (1830 - )
John (1832 - )
Anna (1834 - )
Barnett (1836 - )
Ezekial A. (1838 – 1920)
James (1838 - )
Razilla (1840 - )
Louisa (1841 – 1900)
David (1843 - )
Silas (1845 - )
Rachel M (1847 - )
Clarissa (1848 - )
Zephaniah (1851 – 1919)

I am fairly certain of these children based on census data (1850 – 1880) that shows the 13 youngest as living with the parents between 1850 and 1880). The three oldest would have been old enough to be living on their own at the time of the earliest census (1850). I was able to locate the three oldest in the same geographic area during that those times with their own family. Adding to this is a published account of Ezikial A. (1838 – 1920) in “Past and Present of Saunders County, Nebraska” mentioning there were 9 brothers and 7 sisters in his family.
Several family trees on Ancestry.com have a William Riley Bright (b. 1807 New Jersey, d. 1869 Indiana) as the father of Ezekial Bright (b. 1794 Maryland , d.1880 Indiana) but the birth date and possibly the location do not make sense. I haven’t been able to find supporting information connecting William Riley Bright and Ezekial Bright.
Does anyone have any information that could help shed some light on the ancestors of Ezekial Bright (b. 1794 Maryland) or other Brights from Maryland around this time?
Thanks.
