""Aviator and Passenger Are Burned to Death,"
Knoxville Journal and Tribune,

"Buc, France, April 19. - The aviator Francois Deroy and Marcel Dabliu, who was making a flight with him, were burned to death as a result of a collision in the air today. Thousands witnessed the accident.
     Deroy's machine and another, piloted by the aviator, Bedault, with a passenger, M. Pelladeau, collided in midair. Both machines burst into flames and fel lto the earth. Bedault and Pelladeau were badly injured."

     If you search for "Bedault" +aviation, using the Google search engine, (3-2-07), you will not find any relative links.

I have no information as to the dates of his birth or of his death.
