Spelling of name[edit]

Can we determine if the organization used one or two l's in 'Camelia?' If both were used at the time, the article should say so. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gyrovagus (talkcontribs) 13:31, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Also, I am surprised by the statement that it ended so early. I was told my grandfather and his brother were members of this group. My grandfather was born around 1914 in Florida (I think Panama City) but would have been in the upper Glades when he became a member. Would he have been part of a the last remains of the original organization, or would his group have coopted teh name? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:59, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

  • It's one "l", they say so right on their website. (talk) 04:50, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
    • There are groups that use the name nowadays, but a group that disbanded in 1870 did not have a website. Sources about the original group sometimes use two l's. (talk) 05:01, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
