Hello Joseph, I tried to find Bedsdorf. But it seems there is no village in Germany with that name nowadays. I believe the most likely place is Bedesdorf in Lorraine (Lothringen), now called "Bedestroff" or Benestroff, since the French try to "Frenchisize" the German names. That would suite well with your other relatives from Lorraine. Also note that at that there is a town Bingen between Metz an St. Avold, also in Lorraine.
