*Some contend that Colonneh Lodge was originally spelled "Coloneh", and did not change its name until much later. Indeed The Blue Book, 6th ed. states "1950: Lodge corrected spelling of name from Coloneh". However, the 1949 list from National shows the current spelling.
The Warshield 2011 explains further by including information directly from lodge members:
"This is one of 'disputed' names. The first two patches issued by this lodge were spelled 'Coloneh' with one 'n'. When the lodge had its 50th anniversary, it commemorated the spelling difference with a cut edged F with that spelling.
Some cataloguers contend that it is two different lodges because the first charters were issued with the one 'n' spelling, but members of the lodge contend it was the same lodge, just a correction in the typing."

- In September 1948, as part of the integration into the 12 Regions, the lodges of Area X were reorganized as Area 9-B. These lodges met as Area X one final time in 1949, at Camp Indian Creek.
