Kuapaka Kapeliela's family is from Hana, Maui. As far as I can tell, this is an entirely different Kapeliela clan. Research at the LDS family history center in Kalihi shows that their ancestors are different from ours. When Solomon Kapeliela (my grandfather's younger brother) was a bishop in the Mormon church, Keawe Kapeliela from Hana was also a bishop. I don't believe they ever verified a connection between our families, but I don't think they ever pushed the issue either.
