Capitaine Levavasseur . . .

We might have a name for him. I always think it adds credibility, rather than just a bald surname.

Scroll down to Levavasseur. It isn't the aeronautical engineer of that ilk.

James,

The aeronautical engineer is Léon Marie Joseph Clément Levavasseur, born in Mesnil-au-Val (Manche) - 7 December 1863

and the good one is Léon René Levavasseur, also born in Mesnil-au-Val (Manche) - 17 November1860 (and dead in 1942)

See on "Léonore" (Archives de la Légion d'Honneur)

Bonne recherche - Michel

Brilliant, Michel. Found him. If they were both born in Mesnil-au-Val, they might have been related.

Thank you yet again.

They were two brothers.

The youger (Léon Marie Joseph Clément ) was the inventor, from Antoinette's airplane motor.

 Brothers with the same Christian name?

Yes, two brothers, but Léon was not their first Christian name.

It was more probably René and Clément. Their Birth certificates are on "Léonore" website.
