Eakle is Swiss originally Egli

Ekell Archives has an article written by Jim Eakle(James Kit Eakle) that he did some research on the origins and found that it was originally Egli from Switzerland. Found some messages in Eagle Genforum that suggest that a Marcus Egli is a possible Ancestor to all the Eakle, Eckel, Ekell and other variations.
I also think that Johann Herman Ekell is Johannes Eckel b. 1721 same location as Johann Herman Ekell.
I am now trying to find connection to Marcus Egli's line.
Or any other Egli lines from Switzerland.
