What I want to say is that the name Ezekiel has also given the surname
KASKEL. One of the more famous persons with that name was Michael KASKEL
in Dresden, late 1600s, a banker, founder of Bankhaus Kaskel, which later
became the Dresdner Bank, still in existence, I believe. The same
Dresdener Bank recently came into the news for the fact that during WW2
they had financed operations connected with the deportation of Jews.
The Dresdner Bank's website says that the Bank Michael Kaskel was
established in 1771 >from which it was formed in 1872.
