William Bedwell in the 12&13 Cons Reg't. LA. Mil was from St. Helena Parish, LA. I could not find any other info on him. He is listed as William Bedwall but I believe it should be Bedwell. Remember he probably only served a short time between 1814-1815. He probably was living in someone elses home and not listed as a head of house on the 1820, 1830 or 1840 census. By 1850 he was probably deceased. The William Bedwell in Marion Co., MS. b. 1815 LA. could possibly be his son.
