Name carries on

I READ with interest last week’s article, telling how Noah Fletcher is continuing the Cassel name with his property company Cassel & Fletcher.

Joe Cassel was my maternal grandfather and Noah’s great-grandfather — and it is wonderful that Noah wishes to continue the Cassel name in this way.

However, I should point out that:

* Noah’s father Michael is NOT the first of Joe’s grandsons — that honour belongs to my brother, Jonathan Cassel Davis. I am next in line and Michael is the third grandson. There are six grandsons and most of them were given the middle name Cassel to continue the name.

* Joe’s wife was Deborah, aka Dolly Cassel, and not Pearl as mentioned in the article.

* Joe’s father was not Abraham but Adolph Cassel. I was named after Adolph Cassel, but thankfully I was given his Hebrew name.

This puts the record straight, especially for those who are interested in family history.
