One "L" or Two?

My editor asked about the spelling I use for Trammel's Trace and Nicholas Trammell. Following a convention established some years back by Jack Jackson, I use one "L" in the name of the old trail and two "L"s for the spelling of Nicholas Trammell's last name.

Jackson, an incredible author, historian and Trammell descendant, argued that the two "L"s for the family name was more typical. Additionally, the old original headright survey maps used one "L" when referencing the trace.

So that's how you will see it here and in the website addresses for this site and my Facebook group on Trammel's Trace.
