Biographical data
Name: Belaieff, Alexander Petrovich  
   Also known as: Belayev
Born: 1803
Died: 1887
 
Notes:
Name given variously as Belaieff, Belaief, Belieff, Belieffe in the Illustrated London News. Gaige has 'Beliaev', but I wonder if this is an error for 'Belaiev'? The Era of 9 Apr. 1865 (p.6) has 'Belleff' and the 28 May 1865 issue (p.14) has 'Belleaff'.
