HOW IS Prometheus related to the Rockafellers?

From what little I know of the Rockafellers and the large amount I know of Prometheus, I'm sure an answer can be gleaned from this: Prometheus brought fire to uncivilized man, making them civilized. In one myth tradition, man was actually created by Prometheus. In another, man was made in the image of Prometheus. It can be said that although Prometheus was a Titan, the gods above the Olympians, he was the closest link between gods and men. That's full of symbolism right there.
